Some celebrities' time living in New York passes so quickly and quietly that they barely have a chance to enjoy the city. Others take the opposite approach, sharing their memories in story or song. We take a look at New York City homes linked to celebrities and listed in November 2022.

10 East 64th Street
Months after Ivana Trump’s death, her estate has listed the Upper East Side townhouse she bought in 1992, the year her divorce from "the Donald" was finalized, for $2.5 million; it is now on the market for over 10 times that amount. In her memoir, she wrote about how significant work was required to turn the former dentist’s office into a residence. Similar work might be necessary to bring the home’s decor into the present; when The Wall Street Journal announced the sale, it remarked that stepping inside the house was like stepping back in time to the 1980s.

From the Listing:
Grand and lavish, this limestone townhouse, on a highly coveted block known for its magnificent residences, is truly unparalleled. Built in 1879, this Adamesque home stands apart for its crisp, columned facade and mansard roof, as well as its one-of-a-kind gold and black grilled doors. Designed for luxurious living and the highest caliber entertaining, the six story residence sprawls over 8,725 square feet and features an additional 700 square feet of outdoor space.

A storied townhouse that has played host to luminaries from all industries, this once-in-a-lifetime offering awaits the most discerning buyer. Entering the home through stately double doors, you are greeted by a regal, formal gallery. Under a large, Italian crystal chandelier and surrounded by gilded custom-paneling, the jaw-dropping entry sets the tone for this majestic townhouse. A powder room clad in silk damask wallpaper sits next to the gated elevator that services the entire home. A sweeping, curved staircase ushers you up to the resplendent second floor, housing an entertaining level adorned with four chandeliers and ceiling heights of more than 10.5 feet.

In June 2022, former Disney president Michael Ovitz bought a condo in The Greenwich Lane from Jon Bon Jovi in an all-cash deal. We can only wonder who the next luminary to live there will be – The Real Deal announced that less than six months after closing on the apartment, Mr. Ovitz is looking to flip it.

From the Listing:
Residence 14A, spanning nearly 4,000 square feet with four-bedrooms and three-and-one-half bathrooms, is an opportunity not to be missed. This stunning home is accessed through a private elevator. The gracious entrance gallery flows directly to the enormous, light-flooded great room. The exterior walls in every room are floor-to-ceiling glass. Along the south wall of the great room, three sets of glass doors open onto Juliette balconies, inviting fresh air to fill the space. Dark stained oak hardwood flooring is found throughout. The eat-in kitchen features top of the line Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele appliances with custom walnut cabinetry. A quiet balcony is situated in the transitional space between the kitchen and the living room. The primary suite occupies its own wing of the residence.

When she was still an executive at Shake Shack, Tara Comonte joined the board of TMRW Life Sciences, a technology company focused on the reproductive health sector. She became their CEO last year, and has more recently made another change: Her house in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District has entered contract, and the listing notes that it comes with Landmarks-approved drawings for a four-story carriage house that could rise on the current home’s parking area if the new buyer so chooses.

From the Listing:
Set on Middagh Street in the heart of Brooklyn Heights is a rarely available, pristine, single family townhouse. 56 Middagh Street is located on a historic tree-lined street of Brooklyn Heights with its own multi car parking. Built in 1827, this premier home is one of the most historic houses in the Heights, and at a rare 25' width, benefits from spaciousness and style in a highly sought after location. The five floor home has been meticulously and thoughtfully redesigned inside and out to create a balance of style and comfort.

Tribeca lofts
Sarah Jessica Parker is best known for her connections to the West Village onscreen and off, but there was a time in the 1990s that she lived in a top-floor Tribeca loft. She sold it in the late 1990s; since then, it has been combined with the apartment below it to create a duplex penthouse with a dramatic interior staircase and private roof terrace. The New York Post announced that the penthouse is on the market.

From the listing:
Let your Architectural Digest dreams come to life! Topping the allure of this once-in-a-lifetime offering is a phenomenal 1,000+ square-foot private landscaped roof terrace with breathtaking 360-degree views, and a summer kitchen equipped with a grill enhanced by fabulous north, west and south-facing cityscape views from the Woolworth Tower to the Empire State Building. The spacious residence spans two impeccably-finished levels, both brightened by huge windows on triple exposures (26 in total, including striking wood framed and original arched windows). Airy ceilings up to 10’5", rich hardwood floors and refined finishes enrich the ambience.

During their five-year marriage, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller lived in an elegant Sutton Place apartment where he wrote the screenplay for The Misfits (her last completed film) and she lived a quieter life than in Hollywood.

As Taylor Swift’s Tribeca apartment was being renovated in 2016, she lived in a Greenwich Village carriage house turned residence with double-height ceilings, garage, rooftop terrace, and pool. She commemorated her time there in song, and the New York Post announced that the listing has come back on the market.
