This is not the first time the wife of hedge fund billionaire Philip Falcone has outraged next-door neighbors with a holiday display.
In 2014, Lisa Maria Falcone’s Halloween decorations consisted of an old crone holding a dead infant. This year it’s the round-the-clock Christmas music wafting from her Upper East Side townhomes on East 67th Street.
Neighbor and attorney Nick Wilder has had enough and is suing his next-door neighbor to compel her to shut off what he claims are continuous holiday songs piped from a speaker in her Christmas display. He contends she is invading private residences with her frivolity.
All he wants for Christmas is some quietude.
“It’s not like she plays it a half-hour every day,” stated Wilder. “It’s on from 7 a.m. to twelve o’clock at night. I’m exhausted of listening to ‘Jingle Bells,’ like, 700 or 800 times a day.”
Wilder is currently seeking an order demanding that Falcone shut off the incessant melodious cheer.
