Babe Ruth's home in the early 1940's was this apartment on Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side of New York City. After leaving their apartment on 88th Street, Ruth and his second wife, Claire moved into this building and would remain here until 1942 when they moved further south down Riverside Drive into their final Manhattan apartment. It was here that Ruth spent the early days of his retirement. Besides his regular games of golf, he also played in a variety of exhibition games, drawing large crowds of fans wherever he went, in keeping with his superatar status. On July 4, 1939 he made an appearance at Yankee Stadium for Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day, where the two estranged teammates were photographed together. Later that month he was at Cooperstown for the formal opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1936 Ruth was among the first five inductees.
