This Upper East Side corner brownstone that's said to be the inspiration for the titular character's home in the 1964 children's classic, Harriet the Spy is on the market.
The 3,000 square-foot property has five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms across four stories. It has views of the East River and Gracie Mansion, as well as a garden. There's also a Victorian relic—the property was built in the 1880s—a dumbwaiter that serves the dining room from the kitchen.
The stately Queen Anne brownstone, currently owned by a former editor of Scientific American, is listed for $4.95 million.
