Eleanor Roosevelt's former NYC home is under contract


The final New York City home of former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt has gone under contract.

While the sale price of the historic property has not been disclosed, it hit the market in March for $16 million and its final listing price sat at $13.49 million.

As FOX Business previously reported, Roosevelt – who also served as a United Nations delegate – lived on the bottom floors of the five-story building from 1959 until her death in 1962. She wrote her newspaper column in the home at a desk overlooking the street, and notable guests who visited the home reportedly include John F. Kennedy, Nikita Khrushchev, Prince Edward and Leonard Bernstein.

At 55 East 74th Street, the 8,500-square-foot townhome on the Upper East Side was built in 1910 and has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half-baths.
