Hollywood legend Greta Garbo lived in this building in an apartment, which spans the whole fifth floor, for 40 years. The view overlooking the East River reminded the actress, who made it big in the 1920s and 1930s, of her home in Sweden. She passed away at the age of 84 in 1990. Her family has just recently put the apartment on the market.
