Notable NYC Neighbors

JUNE 7, 2012

Danes divests downtown; Carrey considers DUMBO; J. Crew honcho lands TriBeCa pad; ‘Burg Edge gets the “Girls.”

Actress Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy are selling the downtown NYC apartment that the movie and TV star has owned since 1998 for $5.998 million. The 3,851 square-foot apartment, in a prime SoHo location at 42 Wooster Street, was featured in Architectural Digest in March of 2000 for the custom details–like a built-in pivoting table and a semi-translucent kitchen wall–that Danes had the architecture firm BKS/K Architects add to the already-impressive loft (TheRealEstalker).

“Cable Guy” funnyman Jim Carrey has shown interest in an apartment at the well-known celebrity magnet Clocktower building at 1 Main Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The 7,000 square-foot triplex, listed for $19 million, is home to the Kleier family, stars of HGTV’s real estate reality show “Selling New York” and Esquire magazine’s recent designer bachelor pad showhouse (NYDN).

The Edge condo at 22 North Sixth Street in formerly edgy Williamsburg, Brooklyn recently made an appearance in the popular-and-growing-more-so HBO series “Girls.” The amenity-packed, exuberant waterfront condo did a turn as the lair of a skirt-chasing VC who catches two of the show’s stars and brings them back to his pad to demonstrate his...DJ skills (CurbedNY).

J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler just bought a condo in the landmarked 1887 TriBeCa condo building at 140 Franklin Street. Drexler emerged the victor in a bidding war over the five-bedroom, full-floor apartment complete with 150-bottle temperature-controlled wine cave (NYObserver).
