211 East 62nd Street, Eleanor Roosevelt, Thomas Kilpatrick, Treadwell Farm Historic District

Yes, one of history’s favorite First Ladies once called this Upper East Side place home. In fact, she wrote about her apartment in a column she had, called “My Day,” referring to it as her “new little apartment.” Today the building, part of the landmarked Treadwell Farm Historic District, is a single-family townhouse owned by investor Charles Ueng. He purchased it for about $9 million in 2011, spent $2 million renovating it, and now has it on the market for $18 million.
