For nearly four decades legendary actress Greta Garbo lived a secluded, solitary life away from predatory shutterbugs and Hollywood glitz in a fifth-floor apartment overlooking the East River on 52nd Street. Now, the keys to the apartment have hit the auction block.


Labeled “Miss GG 5th Floor,” the keys were expected to bring in between $10,000 and $15,000, according to Elle Décor. However, the current bid is $6,599 and bidding appears to be closed. Looks like someone got a deal.

The RR Auction sale also included a mink coat that belonged to Garbo. That was expected to sell for over $40,000, but it looks like the last bid was just $25,000.
