John Lennon’s New York Co-Op for Sale

The New York co-op where John Lennon lived from 1973 until his murder in December, 1980, is for sale.  The 10 room apartment is in The Dakota, at 1 West 72nd Street.  Lennon was killed at the building’s entrance.

The asking price is $14,500,000.  Monthly maintenance is $9,479.

Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, still owns several units in The Dakota, but I don’t know if this is one of them.  Among other past Dakota residents are Leonard Bernstein,  José Ferrer, Roberta Flack, Judy Garland, Lillian Gish, William Inge, Rudolf Nureyev, and Joe Namath.   The building is also famously the model for “The Bramford,” where Rosemary, Guy, and Rosemary’s baby lived.  It’s The Dakota that you see in the opening shots of the film.

The John Lennon apartment is #46, and it’s actually been on the market for ~10 months.  Apartment #43 in the 94-unit building was put up for sale more recently.  It was home, for ~50 years, to Lauren Bacall, and it’s priced at $26,000,000.
