You have to wonder, looking at this straightforwardly decorated apartment, where the smoke machine and mirrored ceilings used to be. Not one but two rock-and-roll eminences have lived here. KISS front man Gene Simmons moved in just as the makeup-loving foursome broke through in the early seventies. A decade later, Simmons sold to Jim Steinman—the songwriter behind Meat Loaf’s multiplatinum Bat Out of Hell and Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” (Science-fiction master Isaac Asimov lived in the building, although there’s no evidence he had a hand in lyrics like “Once upon a time there was light in my life / But now there’s only love in the dark.”) In 2006, Steinman sold the apartment to Columbus Avenue Business Improvement District executive Barbara Adler, who’s removed all evidence of black leather.
