Babe Ruth's Former Upper West Side Apartment Asks $1.6M

New, 1 comment

An Upper West Side co-op that was once owned by Babe Ruth is on the market for $1,595,000, the Post reports. Ruth actually owned the entire seventh floor when he lived in 345 West 88th Street from 1929 to 1940, but it was divided into two units after he moved out. The one that's for sale, a two-bed, three-bath, definitely doesn't look much like it did in Ruth's days, although the listing claims that the floors are original. It's also been on the market for two months now—apparently, the $2,864 maintenance costs aren't helping.
