American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s one-time Nomad home is now on the market for $4.5 million. The sprawling, full-floor apartment is part of of a boutique co-op on East 29th Street, which comes with just 11 full-floor residences. Architectural Digest first reported on the listing.
Lichtenstein lived here between 1984-88, several years after he had already received worldwide recognition. The apartment measures 3,200 square feet, and comes with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
