Robert Lowell’s UWS One Bedroom, Stark as His Poems, Is for Sale

Beautiful window. The best room in the apartment!
Bed? Storage? Up for interpretation.
An ideal place for a rooftop poetry club!
Oh, c'mon. Is it necessary to have that big of a bed in there?

It's a little small, but everything is in there!

The home of the late American poet, Robert Lowell, is on the market. Mr. Lowell’s endured a fulfilling run as a poet and author having been a founder of confessional poetry and winning the Pulitzer Prize (twice), National Book Award, and National Book Critics Circle Award.

Curbed discovered that his Upper West Side apartment, which sits off of Central Park West on 67th street, is on the market for $685,000.

It’s a cozy one bedroom with a loft space overhead. Though it isn’t in the same condition as the poet left it in the 1970s—it was recently updated with a new kitchen and the sleeping loft, or storage space.
