On a tree-lined Central Park-adjacent block on the Upper East Side, this pre-war co-op has the distinction of being the late singer and actress Lena Horne’s “private refuge,” according to the New York Times. The celebrated diva moved into the Volney hotel-turned-co-op at 23 East 74th Street in the 1980s, eventually owning five units on the building’s fifth floor. Asking $2,195,000, this 2,100-square-foot, two-bedroom home–currently owned by Horne’s daughter–is the last of those units to be listed. A combo of two units, the space is currently configured as a huge one-bedroom, but can easily accommodate two bedrooms with space to spare.
