A Queen Anne style house located on 156 East Avenue, and once the inspiration for the timeless children’s book, “Harriet is spying on” was listed for $ 6 million, The Post has learned.

A film based on the book has been developed, starring Michelle Trachtenberg and Rosie O’Donnell, about a girl who keeps a private diary that she takes everywhere and records the suspicious activities of everyone she knows in town.

Located in the Yorkville neighborhood, the four bedroom, three bathroom home overlooks Carl Schurz Park.

It was first listed earlier this month for $ 6.6 million, but received a price cut of $ 625,000 on Monday.

It was last sale in 2016 after 70 years out of the market for $ 5 million.

Built in the 1880s, the house has undergone a complete gut restoration, according to the listing.
