This gorgeous $1.1M Upper East Side co-op was once the office of Marilyn Monroe’s psychiatrist

Marilyn Monroe may not have been very open at the time about her mental health struggles, but they’ve since been documented through diary entries and letters she’d written. As Vanity Fair noted, in the mid-1950s, Monroe saw a psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Hohenberg, on the recommendation of her acting coach Lee Strasburg. Dr. Hohenberg, whom she visited up to five times a week, operated out of a first-floor office at 155 East 93rd Street. This exact Carnegie Hill apartment, now a residential co-op unit, has just hit the market for $1,125,000. It has lovely pre-war details, lots of closet space, and a nicely modernized kitchen.

The home is technically a two-bedroom, but the second bedroom is currently used as the living room, off which there is a half bathroom. The central room off the entrance is set up as the dining room, but it’s spacious enough to serve as the living room if the new owner did want to use the home as a two-bedroom. Throughout are original parquet hardwood floors and city-quiet windows.

Down the entry hall is the large kitchen, which has cool curved granite counters, tons of open shelving, a wine fridge, and a washer/dryer.

Off the dining room is the main bedroom wing. In the hallway, there’s a closet and full bathroom, and the bedroom itself has a full wall of three oversized closets. All the home’s closets are cedar-lined.

The co-op is just east of Lexington Avenue, just a couple blocks from the Q train and the 4, 5, 6 trains at Lexington and 96th. The building was constructed in 1927 and has 72 residences, along with a full-time lobby attendant and live-in super.
