The New York penthouse where some of the {John Lennon}'s most iconic moments took place has hit the market for $5.5 million (£4.3 million).

The property, located at the top of the exclusive Southgate complex at 434 East 52nd Street, spans three floors and includes an enormous 2,000-square-foot wraparound terrace, offering stunning panoramic views of the city.
According to the listing, the apartment is where the former The Beatles star's black-and-white New York City photos were taken. They were later published in Andy Warhol's Interview magazine in 1974.
It was while residing at the property that Lennon also famously claimed he saw a UFO.
Aside from its history, the property also offers a host of stunning amenities, including an elegant living room with high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, and gorgeous inlaid hardwood flooring, a French countryside-style kitchen and dining room, a library and media room, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
