The Manhattan home of the late and acclaimed Robert Morgenthau, who was the longest-serving district attorney in New York state history, has been listed for $3.2 million, The Post has learned.

Morgenthau bought the co-op, located at 64 E. 86th St. with his wife and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lucinda Franks, in 1996 — and remained there until his death. Franks died in May 2021 – and the house is being sold by their estate.

Morgenthau held this position from 1975 until his retirement in 2009. He died in 2019, just 10 days shy of his 100th birthday.

His career took off in 1961. After 12 years practicing corporate law, Morgenthau accepted an appointment from Pres. John F. Kennedy as United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

During his tenure as district attorney, Morgenthau prosecuted some of the most infamous cases and criminals in the city’s history, including Mark David Chapman (the assassin of John Lennon); Bernhard Goetz (the “subway vigilante”); Robert Chambers (the “preppie killer”); and he helped overturn the convictions of the “Central Park Five” in 2002.

Morgenthau’s most notable early case was the 1962 conviction of state Supreme Court Justice J. Vincent Keogh and Anthony (Tony Ducks) Corallo.

Corallo was a gangster and the boss of the Lucchese family. Corallo earned his nickname by avoiding subpoenas and convictions, accused of attempting to bribe to influence a federal bankruptcy fraud case. At the time, he wielded immense control over the trucking and construction unions in New York.

Morgenthau also successfully prosecuted mob boss John Gotti.

The former cooperative of Morgenthau is a homogeneous combination of two apartments on the tenth floor of the building. Spanning approximately 2,500 square feet, the home is currently configured as a five-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home with a large living room and separate dining room.

Other features include a spacious second living/dining room, kitchen and pantry, marble-mantled wood-burning fireplace, classic built-ins and a wooden archway with pocket doors.

“Keep the current layout or create new possibilities: remove the small bedroom for a larger and wider living and dining room; swap out the kitchen and laundry/service room for an alternate setup,” the listing notes.

Built in 1917, the pre-war building is a 37-unit elevator co-op in the heart of the Upper East Side. Features include a full time doorman, live-in superintendent, laundry and bike storage.

Jonah Ramu Cohen with The Corcoran Group holds the list.

On February 27, 2009, Morgenthau announced that he would not be running again in 2009. “I didn’t expect to be here this long… [R]Recently I thought I had served 25 years beyond the normal retirement age,” he said during his announcement.

“If you want people to have confidence in their government, you have to show that people with economic power or political power are not immune from prosecution,” he added. told Bloomberg.

Throughout his career, he received bipartisan support, which led him to run nearly 35 years as a district attorney.
