Nowadays, Holly Golightly — the fictional character played by Audrey Hepburn, who got by on the generosity of her many suitors in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s — would need extra cash to afford the Lenox Hill lodgings she occupied in the 1961 film. The townhouse featured in the movie is now on the market for $10 million.

The four-story, 3,800-square-foot townhouse at 169 East 71st Street was previously owned by management consultant Peter Bacanovic, who spent five months in prison in 2004 in connection with Martha Stewart’s insider trading case, Curbed reported.
