Breakfast at Tiffany’s is based on a Truman Capote’s novel, the story of a young woman in New York City who meets an attractive man when he moves into her apartment building. Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly is an eccentric café society girl and this is her most memorable role of the actress that claimed it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert.
The style of Hepburn survived to the years and she’s one of the Hollywood divas. Breakfast at Tiffany’s won two Academy Awards: Best Original Score and Best Original Song for the famous “Moon River”. The film was also nominated for three other Academy Awards: Best Actress for Hepburn, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction.
“If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name”. Holly Golightly

The apartment was listed, years ago, for the price of $5.85 million, but now the house was divided into two duplexes and it was converted in a four-bedroom, five-bathroom single-family duplex apartment with a lot of space and comfortable living spaces.
The East 71st Street brownstone was built in 1910 and suffered two major renovations since the film was made, but it still conserves the style and details that you can see at the movie. The owner, Mr. Bacanovic, told the New York Times that some scenes were shot inside, with cameras perched outside, and that the party scene which Holly hosts wearing a dress made from a bed sheet, took place in his living room.
