Marilyn Monroe's NYC 'Sanctuary' Available To Rent

If you've ever dreamed of living like Marilyn Monroe, now you can! The Hollywood icon's favorite New York City apartment is available to rent, but you'd have to be a millionaire or "married to a millionaire" to afford it.

Monroe described this Upper East Side apartment as a "sanctuary," and now it can be yours for $27,500 per month. According to Town Residential, the property boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a jacuzzi, and a complete steam shower -- because, you know, some like it hot.

With the flat being only a short walk to Central Park, fine restaurants, and elegant shops, one can only imagine that whomever rents it would also feel like Hollywood royalty... because at that price you'd have to be Hollywood royalty to afford it.

As Daily Mail points out, the apartment was never owned by Monroe herself, rather it was owned by fashion photographer Milton Greene (Monroe and Greene formed Marilyn Monroe Productions in 1954) but the actress would stay at the apartment whenever she was in New York City.

While the apartment retains it's old Hollywood charm, it features some modern-day amenities like central air conditioning and heating, security, and laundry facilities -- because if you're dropping $27,500 on rent, that's included.
