An Upper West Side penthouse lived in by Yankees center fielder Joe DiMaggio has just hit the market for $4.5 million. The penthouse at 400 West End Avenue was home to DiMaggio from 1939 through 1942, during the Yankee Slugger’s famed 56-game hitting streak and during his marriage to Dorothy Arnold, reports LLNYC.
The co-op is a classic six with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a 1,300-square-foot wrap-around terrace. The penthouse comes with original wood floors, and has been nicely updated. Both the master bedroom and dining room let out onto the terrace.
LLNYC notes that DiMaggio most likely rented to the apartment, as the building went co-op years later. Today, living here carries a $5,531 monthly maintenance fee. The apartment is on the market with Leslie Singer and John Venekamp at Brown Harris Stevens.
