It’s a long way from the Standard Hotel.

Page Six has learned that the New York City Department of Buildings has condemned part of fake heiress Anna Delvey’s East Village apartment.

Ex-con It girl Delvey — aka Anna Sorokin — is on house arrest at the First Avenue walk-up, where she has thrown “party of the century”-contender bashes and art exhibits since she was arrested by ICE for overstaying her visa after her release from prison.

When she was making a living as a successful con artist, Delvey lived at the Standard High Line, among other chic hotels.

But now we hear her pad has become so crappy that it’s become unacceptable even by First Ave. standards.

A Page Six spy spotted a “partial vacate” notice on the downstairs doorway of her apartment building this week saying, “The Department of Buildings has determined that conditions within this premises are imminently perilous to life.”

The sign adds, “This premises has been vacated and re-entry is prohibited until such conditions have been eliminated to the satisfaction of the department. Violators of this… order are subject to arrest.”

While the notice at first makes it sound as if the woman on house arrest could be arrested for being in her house (a legal bind by any measure), sources close to Delvey tell us that it’s actually only the garbage chute that’s out of commission.

Sources added that the “partial” part of the vacate order just means that she and the other residents can’t use the chute until it has been fixed.

A notice from the landlord, seen by Page Six, says, “Please be advised that the vacate order posted on the building is for the garbage shaft area. We will temporarily move the trash from that location until the area is fixed.”

As previously reported, Sorokin was arrested in 2017 for gulling banks and businesses into giving her money and services because they believed she was a German heiress.

In 2019 she was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison and was released on parole in 2021.

Since then, she’s developed something of a celebrated art career and even hosted Club House Arrest at the apartment in January, attracting guests like designer Cynthia Rowley and her daughter and writers Rachel Rabbit White, Cat Marnell and Ben Widdicombe.
