If these walls could sing, they’d probably belt out a Gershwin brothers tune. One of the two adjoining penthouses occupied by George and Ira Gershwin has just hit the market for $5.99 million, The Post reports. The two apartments, located at 33 Riverside Drive, were quite the party pad for the two brothers back in the day; a famed locale that welcomed legendary celebs like Ethel Merman (incidentally, the brothers were said to have written “Girl Crazy” within its walls). The pair called the two penthouses home from 1929 until 1933, and now Ira’s space is up for grabs.

Measuring 2,000 square feet, the penthouse sits atop a handsome 17-story building erected in 1928. The home also comes with a private wraparound terrace with sweeping river views and has its very own elevator landing. And with a generous kitchen and a large living room to boot, it’s no wonder that the Gershwins had the town buzzing with their epic parties.
