Monroe married three times; her last and longest marriage (five years) was to Miller.

Meanwhile, the couple lived in a 14-story 1927 building at 444 E 57th St. in a 2,190-square-foot antebellum home with a formal dining room, fireplaces, and coveted views of the EastRiver.

It is a prestigious address. The New York Post notes that designer Bill Blass lived there in the building’s penthouse, and other notable residents have included royalty like Princess Madeleine of Sweden.

The apartment itself is one of two upstairs. It is listed by Brown Harris Stevens, whose list contains more details about the residence’s many amenities:

It includes a large entrance hall leading to a large living room with wood burning fireplace, 9 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. Next to the entrance hall is a powder room with tasteful built-ins. The spacious and contemporary dining room can easily accommodate 10 people and is perfect for entertaining. A third bedroom, currently a library, has a wood burning fireplace, custom cabinetry and pocket doors. The large and exceptional renovated chef’s kitchen with a central island is adorned with marble countertops, numerous custom white cabinets, high-end appliances including a Wolf stove, a stainless steel hood as well as two Dacor ovens and two dishwashers. Miele crockery.

When Monroe and Miller lived at the address, the now-iconic actor decorated in his own inimitable style. According to OtSoNY.com, Monroe “did the walls a simple white and had floor-to-ceiling mirrors in the living room, after bringing the two rooms together. The couch, chairs, and furniture were all white, as was the piano.”

For his part, “Miller hung a photo of Marilyn taken by Jack Cardiff in England”, in his studio. Although he said “it was his favorite picture of Marilyn, he ditched it when he left the apartment”.

The Job reports that the building’s amenities “include a doorman, elevator operator, resident manager, and bicycle storage.” That, and a fascinating history of the 20th century.
