GRETA GARBO…………her apartment is FOR SALE

GARBO.  The Hollywood Legend…………lived here for 40 years. Three bed, three bath, sprawling rooms……….windows in every direction……..the apt sits on the East River.

Her heirs are selling the apartment for a mere $5.95 million.  It is a resplendent apartment filled with grace and sophistication that you would imagine Garbo living in.

The apartment takes up the entire 5th floor of the exclusive CAMPANILE at 450 East 52s street.  Garbo enjoyed the water views………..now you can too.
