Buy the Great Bambino's apartment

By NexChange

He's the sultan of swat, the king of crash, the colossus of clout, the Great Bambino, and his apartment is for sale.

The late Yankee great Babe Ruth's Upper West Side apartment is on the market for $1.6 million, reports DNAinfo. The 1913 built apartment on 88th Street holds two bedrooms and three bathrooms, half of the entire floor that Ruth once owned. Monthly maintenance fees run close to $3,000.

Julia Ruth Stevens, Ruth's now 99-year-old daughter, shared memories of the many Yankees that ate dinner and were visited in the home when the Ruths lived there between 1929 and 1940.
“Mom and Dad loved to entertain there," Stevens told the Post. “We had a maid and cook, and Dad would always invite Yankees who had been traded and were in town with other teams. He knew they wanted a home-cooked meal [while on the road].”
