Former New Yorker and Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown listed a six-bedroom triplex on East 57th Street for $9.75 million.

The apartment, which Brown shared with her journalist husband Harold Evans, has seen a number of famous dinner guests over the years, including women’s rights advocate Malala Yousafzai, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair.

With the children grown, the media power couple plan to relocate to a smaller apartment. The Real Deal reported in May that they would be listing the Sutton Place triplex. Earlier this month, they listed their Quogue home in the Hamptons for $8.6 million.
