Here’s a chance to own the former home of Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the nation’s favorite First Ladies. She lived at 211 East 62nd Street in Lenox Hill from 1953 to 1958 following her husband’s death. In the opulent spaces, she entertained the likes of Indira Gandhi, Adlai Stevenson, and John Kennedy, pursued her social justice and political causes, and penned her popular column for “My Day.” Investor Charles Ueng purchased the townhouse for $9 million in 2011 and spent $2 million on renovations before putting it on the market for $18 million in 2015. The property has been on and off the market since then and was just relisted with a lower asking price of $13,500,000.
