Marilyn Monroe’s NYC Townhouse Up For Rent

Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe’s luxurious Upper East Side sanctuary is now up for rent, and it could be yours for a whopping $27,500 a month.

The breathtaking four-story building, complete with four gorgeous bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, offers the perfect little slice of Old Hollywood glam in the midst of New York City. Built in 1899 and once owned by famous fashion photographer and Monroe’s good friend, Milton Greene, this 3,500-square-foot space on 127 East 78th street features five fireplaces, intricate decorative wallpaper, gloriously high ceilings and a grand marble staircase.

Full of over-the-top character and striking charm, it’s easy to see why Monroe couldn’t resist making this sophisticated townhouse her home-away-from-home while she was in the Big Apple. If only these walls could talk! See inside the infamous star’s home and tell us what you think of it in the comments below.
