Sinatra’s Big Apple Penthouse!
Who knew – or remembered – that Frank Sinatra owned a stunning New York penthouse that was way ahead of its time? Judging by his other glamorous digs over the years, his only-the-best-will-do taste and flair for the dramatic certainly shows in this co-op where he lived while his short term marriage to Mia Farrow played out.
Frank and pixie-faced Mia met on the set of Sinatraâ€™s film Von Ryan’s Express in 1965. They were married in 1966; lived in this stunning glass-walled penthouse in New York and were divorced by 1968. When Miaâ€™s movie Rosemaryâ€™s Baby production time ran over and she refused to quit the film to be in Sinatraâ€™s film The Detective,Â The mega-star was very upsetÂ which began the break in their marriage. Â Sinatra, Â handed FarrowÂ her the divorce papers in front of her cast and crew of Rosemary’s Baby.
If you love to entertain, this is the place for it. The 18â€™ ceilings with glass walls overlooking the river add drama and setting while you tell your guests that Olâ€™ 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 FDR Drive from the apartmentâ€™s terraces. With a modernization undertaken by the current owner after she bought it in 2008, the 3,200 square foot apartment has 4 bedrooms, 6 baths and an additional 2,000 square feet in two wrap-around terraces overlooking the East River.
