High atop a nondescript historic building in NYC’s East Village lies a former concert hall that has been transformed into an extravagant floor-through loft apartment by photographer Gregory Colbert. Colbert, who is professionally obsessed with documenting human interactions with animals, could fit a whole herd of elephants in the great room, known as Beethoven Hall, which boasts 32-foot arched ceilings and windows that date to the 1860 construction.
