The Manhattan penthouse that Frank Sinatra shared with Mia Farrow during their short marriage has finally found a buyer. Luxury Listings NYC reports that the Upper East Side apartment, which originally hit the market in 2012 for $7.7 million, is under contract for $4.9 million.
The East 72nd Street apartment has 3,200 square feet and once was a Rat Pack hangout where legend has it Sammy Davis Jr. threw champagne glasses off the 23rd floor terrace into the East River below. Pop artist Andy Warhol called it a “glittering grotto in the sky,” where President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe used to party down when they visited Sinatra’s place in old New York, New York.
The four-bedroom duplex, which has 18-foot ceilings and a new glass staircase, also was the love nest Sinatra shared with Mia Farrow when they married in 1966; Sinatra was 50, and Farrow was 21. The couple divorced two years later but remained close friends throughout Sinatra’s life, a Vanity Fair profile says.
The New York Observer says Sinatra owned the co-op from 1961 to 1972. The current owner bought the apartment in 2010 for $2.3 million, according to New York City property records.
