The Upper East Side’s reputation as the home neighborhood for blue bloods, aristocrats and socialites is sorely diminished without the longtime presence of Lee Radziwill.

The younger sister of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis lived in her Lenox Hill co-op apartment for more than 30 years, but with her passing in February 2018, it was only a matter of time before NYC real estate marked the end of her reign, too.

Radziwill’s full-floor apartment in the 1928 co-op at 160 East 72nd Street in Lenox Hill was listed for sale back in April for $5.7 million, with the listing held by associate broker Leslie Coleman at Brown Harris Stevens. It has just sold, after a 14% price drop to $4.9 million, closing in mid-October for a final sale price of $4.25 million.

The apartment is accessible by a private elevator and is split between north and south exposures after entering the vestibule and foyer entry. Here’s the floor plan:

There are 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a 31-foot living room that overlooks 72nd Street, staff room and formal dining room. The master suite has a wood-burning fireplace. There are open views to the north.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the listing, Radziwill owned this 15th-floor apartment for more than 30 years. The apartment is right around the corner from the stately duplex developed decades ago by Jackie and Lee’s grandfather, James T. Lee, at 740 Park Ave., which sold in 2017 for $25.25 million.

Jackie Onassis, in post-Camelot days after the 1963 assassination of President Jack Kennedy and after her 1968 marriage to shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, lived at 1040 Fifth Ave. — an exclusive co-op overlooking Central Park by Rosario Candela. (Hence the Jackie Onassis Reservoir.)

Like Lee, Jackie’s apartment at 1040 Fifth Ave. was on the 15th floor. It was later owned by billionaire David Koch of Koch Industries fame, who set a sales record for the building when he sold the apartment for $30 million. (A subsequent penthouse sale at 1040 Fifth set a new record at $32 million.)

If you’re ready to drill down deeper into the worldwide lives of Jackie O and Lee (whose full name was Caroline Lee, after whom Jackie named her daughter with Jack Kennedy) Netflix has just the thing for you. It’s called “Jackie: The Tale of Two Sisters.” The title alone captures how much more famous was Jackie than Lee, but the two were very close and deserve to have their legacies, including their lifelong homes in the Upper East Side, cemented together.
