The film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” spawned many iconic items. The little black dress. The oversize sunglasses. The wide-brimmed black straw hat.
Now, as the movie celebrates its 50th anniversary, the familiar town house at 169 East 71st Street where Holly Golightly lived and hosted her wild cocktail parties has gone on the market for $5.85 million.
The four-story house, which is in a landmark district, figured prominently in the 1961 film. It was here that Holly Golightly, as played by Audrey Hepburn, lived alongside Paul Varjak, the aspiring writer played by George Peppard.
The house, with its stately dark green double doors, no longer has the green and white striped window awnings it wore in the movie, but it is not difficult to imagine Holly sweeping out of a cab after a late night of revelry and racing up the steps.
