Page Six reports: ABY Rosen, the real estate powerhouse who owns Lever House and the Seagram Building, celebrated his birthday Thursday night with a party thrown by his wife, Samantha, in the Forstmann mansion on East 71st Street. The 45-foot-wide limestone building (built in 1922 for woolens merchant Julius Forstmann), which Rosen owns and had been renting out for $154,000 a month, has been empty since the Salander O’Reilly art gallery went bankrupt last fall. Rosen had bars on three floors, disco balls and Samantha Ronson – just back from a week in Paris with Lindsay Lohan – doing the spinning. Among the hundreds of well-wishers were Donald and Melania Trump, Stavros Niarchos, Jonathan Tisch, Donny Deutsch, Sante D’Orazio, Katie Ford, David Koch and Ian Schrager.
