A Look at John Lennon’s Former New York Penthouse and Dakota Apartments

Here’s more on Lennon’s Manhattan penthouse as well as his apartments in the historic Dakota building where he was shot and killed on Dec. 8, 1980.

More than four decades after his death, John Lennon remains a legend in the music industry. He formed The Beatles in the early 1960s and was the co-songwriter, co-lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist of the iconic group. In 1969, he left the band and embarked on a solo career. Lennon married his partner Yoko Ono that same year and during their marriage lived in lavish New York City apartments.

The three-story penthouse is 4,000 square feet with a 2,000 square-foot wrap-around terrace. The same terrace where Lennon claimed he saw a UFO. The home has five bedrooms, four baths, four fireplaces, high ceilings, wood floors, a library/media room, a large chef’s kitchen, and a formal dining room. One of the bedrooms boasts 14-foot ceilings and a two-level dressing room with rotating clothing racks.
