A Queen Anne townhouse at 156 East End Avenue (at 87th Street) supposedly served as inspiration for Harriet The Spy author Louise Fitzhugh, and it’s recently hit the market for a tad under $6 million, The New York Post reports. Located within the Henderson Place Historic District, the single family home features 9 rooms, 4 beds and 3 baths, and last sold in 2016.
Town & Country reports that the townhouse at 169 East 71st Street, which was used in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as the exterior of Holly Golightly’s residence, is now available for short-term stays. The house can be booked through luxury vacation rental platform Inspirato – which charges a $2,500 / month membership fee. A write-up by Guest of a Guest is titled “You Can Now Stay In Holly Golightly’s ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Townhouse!” But $2,500 per month is a lot. So maybe you can’t actually stay there.
