The apartment where Marilyn Monroe and other celebrities like Bill Blass, Arthur Miller, Bobby Short and also a Swedish Princess have lived in different times has recently hit the market.
According to the listing, Cary Grant and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor stopped by the 2,200-square-foot prewar condo to attend Bill Blass’ fabulous terrace parties, too.
The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment also boasts heated floors, a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a solarium in the guest bedroom, according to the listing. Oh, and of course, there’s a pretty spectacular view of the East River and the 59th Street Bridge.
So, basically, if you dream of living like an Old Hollywood star – and have a spare $6.95 million lying around – this is the apartment for you.
Unsurprisingly, the notoriously glamorous Marilyn Monroe had excellent taste in real estate throughout her career. When she wasn’t married, the starlet would stay with her photographer friend Milton Greene on the Upper East Side, going so far as to call his townhouse her “sanctuary,”. With a marble staircase and European terrace, the apartment is decidedly flashier than this midtown space.
The New York Times reports that Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller moved to the 13th-floor apartment shortly after their wedding in 1956. Monroe had previously been renting an apartment just a few blocks away – in fact, it was pretty close to the apartment featured in “How To Marry A Millionaire.” Miller wrote his final draft of “The Misfits” here, while Monroe was known to walk her Maltese terrier, Maf, in the nearby park on Sutton Place. The couple called the apartment home until they divorced in 1961.
