530 East 72nd Street, New York
Frank Sinatra, who was known for his flair for the dramatic, lived in the New York penthouse with his short term marriage to Mia Farrow. Frank and Mia meet on the set of Frank Sinatra’s film “Von Ryan’s Express” in 1965. They decided to get married in 1966, and live in this stunning glass-walled penthouse, until 1968, when Mia’s movie “Rosemary’s Baby” production time ran over and she refused to quit the film to be in Sinatra’s film “The Detective”. Sinatra decided to hand Mia divorce papers on her set in front of her cast and crew.
If you love to entertain, this is the place for it. The 18-foot-high ceilings with glass walls overlooking the river add drama while you tell your guests that Ol’ Blue Eyes designed the space when it was under construction in 1961, and how his pal Sammy Davis, Jr. enjoyed tossing champagne glasses down on the FDR Drive from the apartment’s terraces. With a modernization undertaken by the current owner after she bought it in 2008, the 3,200 square foot apartment has four bedrooms, six baths and an additional 2,000 sq. ft. in two wrap-around terraces overlooking the East River.
During the eleven years Frank owned the home, it was a known swinging party place that welcomed not only his Rat Pack gang but also the likes of President John F. Kennedy, Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe.
