This Beekman apartment may be small, but it’s nothing if not charming. Located at the prestigious Southgate co-op at 434 East 52nd Street, the studio has plenty of pre-war details like beamed ceilings, oak floors, classic moldings, and an exposed brick wood-burning fireplace. It also has a foyer, two generous closets, a separate full kitchen, and a dressing nook outside the bathroom. And it’s asking just $349,000.

One of New York City’s most storied apartments has just hit the market. John Lennon’s former penthouse at 434 East 52nd Street, where he briefly lived with his mistress May Pang during the 1970s and famously spotted a UFO, is asking $5.5 million. The 4,000-square-foot triplex in the Southgate co-op, located where Sutton Place, Beekman, and Midtown East meet, was also where the iconic photos of Lennon wearing a tank top that said “New York City” were taken.
Take the tour
Here’s an elegant prewar co-op at 434 East 52nd Street asking $1.749 million. The two-bedroom Beekman residence features northern and southern exposures and a stunning sunken living room. It would be interesting to see what the space would look like with less busy furniture and fewer pictures overshadowing the rich detail, but even with the distracting decor, you can see that this is a great place for a full-time residence or pied-a-terre.
