“Throughout the home, original details have been lovingly preserved and modern conveniences seamlessly infused,” said to the Daily Mail John Carapella, a representative for the real estate firm Town Residential, which is marketing the property. “It is an honor to represent this treasure,” he added.
The residence is in Upper East Side, just a short walk from Central Park.
It wasn’t just Marilyn that lived there, other celebrities have also called 127 East 78th Street home, including Bette Davis.

The townhouse was actually owned by famed fashion photographer Milton Greene, but Marilyn was always staying there when visiting the Big Apple.
Monroe and Greene were not just friends. Together they had formed the Marilyn Monroe Productions which produced “The Prince and the Showgirl” and “Bus Stop,” two of Monroe’s most popular flicks, together with “Don’t Bother to Knock” and “Some Like It Hot.”
