If the Yankees’ recent spate of bad luck has gotten you down, here’s one way to re-live the Bronx Bombers’ glory days–though it’ll cost you $4.5 million. LL NYC noticed that Joe DiMaggio’s former Upper West Side penthouse has hit the market. Joltin’ Joe lived in the classic six pad at 400 West End Avenue from 1939-1942, during his brief marriage to actress Dorothy Arnold, as well as his record-breaking 56-game winning streak. In addition to the celebrity pedigree, the most spectacular part of the home is its 1,300-square-foot, wrap-around terrace with three exposures offering views of the iconic Apthorp, Hudson River and New Jersey, and George Washington Bridge.

A private landing off the elevator leads to a large entry foyer, which opens to the living room.

The dining room, which opens into the kitchen, has a lovely wall of built-in shelving and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead to the terrace.

The master bedroom has more built-in shelving, an en-suite bath, a walk-in closet, and another entrance to the terrace.

The second bedroom also has an en-suite.

The residence is currently owned by Wesleyan University; an alumni gifted it to them in May under the condition that it be sold.
