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.

THROWAWAY ART
We all begrudge the bundles of junk letters and pamphlets that get pushed through our doors, but artist Sandy Schimmel Gold welcomes such unwanted mail - and uses it to form stunning portraits of showbiz legends.
Schimmel Art is a recycled amalgamation of junk mail, ads and flyers, which Sandy cuts into tiles before skillfully rearranging them to portray the faces of such stars as John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
While the perpetrators of junk mail may be pulling their hair out over Sandy's art, the results are undeniably impressive - and they may inspire budding creative talents to take a similar approach to the irritating leaflets many of us dump directly in the recycling bin.
New York-born Sandy says, “Every little ‘tile’ you see was once advertising ephemera and/or junk mail. I recycle canvas and frames. Why throw them in a land fill when they can be recovered and reused?” (TN/WN)John Lennon
