Default Slightly OT: Babe Ruth’s apartment for sale for $1.6 million

The home that Ruth built is for sale for just under $1.6 million on the Upper West Side.

Babe Ruth’s former two-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op at 345 W. 88th St. — where he lived at the end of his historic New York career — drew about 50 prospective buyers to its open house Sunday.

“My fondest memories [of the apartment] are of me and Father listening to ‘The Green Hornet’ on the radio and looking out to Riverside Park,’’ the Yankees legend’s daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens, 98, told The Post from her home in Conway, New Hampshire.

If you can afford to buy the place, you can afford to buy the BN and hang it above the Mantle

Wonder if the person who buys it will sell "Babe Used" relics. Perhaps some floorboard and sleep used patches from an old quilt.
