Andy Warhol’s former UES studio sells for nearly $10 million

The pop artist rented the two-story former firehouse for $150 per month in the early 1960s.

Does this count as 159 E. 87th Street’s 15 minutes of fame?

The former two-story firehouse Andy Warhol once rented for $150 a month to use as a studio just sold for $9.9 million, The Real Deal reported.

Warhol used the 5,000-square-foot building from 1962 to 1963 while he was living at 1342 Lexington Ave., between East 89th and East 90th streets. It was his first studio outside of his home and where he worked on his “Death and Disaster” series.

The property was purchased by Steve Bogden, who used the entity Warhol Hook and Ladder 13 LLC for the purchase, records indicated. Art dealer Guy Wildenstein sold the property.
