Beloved author Harper Lee wrote in her masterpiece “To Kill a Mocking Bird” that “you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.” Well now’s your chance.

A one-bedroom apartment directly next to the onetime retreat of the late author of “Go Set a Watchman” has hit the market and you can have it for a song (relatively).

For years, the reclusive Alabama-born author maintained a Manhattan home in the building at 433 East 82nd Street in Yorkville. A neighboring home is now available for the ultimate fan at the fairly modest price of $2,650 per month, according to the New York Post.

The one-bedroom, 800-square-foot apartment features ] built-in bookshelves, new kitchen appliances and “ new marble touches.”

Lee, who recently died at an assisted-living facility in Alabama at age 89, paid less than $1,000 a month for her one-bedroom in this building. However, she hadn’t used the apartment since suffering a stroke in 2007. Lee even renewed her lease for another two years months before dying, according to the Post.
