Senator Jacob Javits’ one time Sutton Place co-op just hit the market for $5.2 million. The classic pre-war, located at 322 East 57th Street, was Javits’ home for 40 years and it features some sleek Art Deco design.

Designed in 1933 by architect Joseph Urban, the 3,300-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment features beamed high ceilings, big casement windows, wood burning fireplace, entry hall and maid’s rooms.

The home is currently owned and listed by the influential senator’s children, according to 6sqft. Pamela D’Arc of Stribling is marketing the unit.

Sen. Javits, the namesake of Manhattan’s Javits Center, died at the age of 81 in 1986 after serving in the House of Representatives, as the New York state Attorney General and finally senator. While living in the 12th and 13th floor duplex, he entertained notables such as Henry Kissinger and Truman Capote.
