Andy Warhol’s East 66th Street townhouse, where he lived for the final years of his life, was practically an Upper East Side landmark during his lifetime. That’s where he kept his “time capsules” and the other stuff he accumulated—and there was a lot of it. But before he moved there, Andy lived in another, arguably more charming place: a circa-1880s townhouse on Lexington Avenue, which he shared with his mother. Warhol moved up here from Murray Hill in 1960 and stayed for fourteen years, creating some of his most enduring pieces in the house, including the Campbell’s Soup and Dollar Bill series. He paid almost $60,000, about half of which he covered with his down payment—altogether, about as much as you’d pay for a single decent Warhol drawing today.
