Live next to Harper Lee’s NYC hideout for $2,650 a month


Here’s a listing you can write home about.

A one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan’s Yorkville neighborhood — most of all, a unit located directly next to the former lair of late reclusive author Harper Lee — has hit the market, asking $2,650 per month, The Post has learned.

The Alabama-born author of “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Go Set a Watchman” kept apartment 1E in the building, located at 433 E. 82nd St., near York Avenue, for 40 years, as The Post reported shortly after her death in February.

Lee, who died in her sleep at an assisted-living facility in Alabama at age 89, paid less than $1,000 a month for her one-bedroom in this building, which looks out to a courtyard. She split her time between the Big Apple and her hometown of Monroeville, but hadn’t lived in these parts since suffering a stroke in 2007. Still, she renewed her lease for another two years, just months before dying.

“She’s up to date on her rent,” live-in property manager Steven Austern previously told The Post.

Now, a fan of Lee’s work can swoop in on unit 1F.

Also a one-bedroom, this new rental measures 800 square feet. It comes with built-in bookshelves, new kitchen appliances and an updated bathroom with new marble touches and a white pedestal sink. A total of six windows also fill the apartment with good natural light.

There’s room for a king-size bed in the sleeping quarters and a dining nook in the roomy living area, the listing notes.
