Celebrity Heat Map Lets New Yorkers Track Their Stars
“Curbed.com,” the Website and blogs specializing in urban real estate, created a new feature to let New Yorkers stay up-to-date on celebrity living spaces. In fact, since New York follows a close second to Los Angeles for stargazing, knowing where theatre, movie, television, music, sports and business stars begin and end each day is a popular pass time. The “New York City Celebrity Heat Map” points out recent leases, purchases and sales on the New York landscape by celebrities of all stripes.
Stay Up on Your Favorite Celeb
Take a recent purchase by Olivier Sarkozy, half-brother to former French president Nicolas: the frenchman bought an East Village townhouse for a cool $6.35 million dollars. Speculation: he wanted to be nearer to his youthful celebrity sweetheart Mary-Kate Olsen.
In addition to your current favorites, you can follow favorite properties formerly housing A-listers, and maybe scoop one up for yourself. Frank Sinatra’s one-time penthouse on East 72 Street is newly renovated and on the market for an asking price of $7.7 million
Take Guests on a Celebrity Tour
Along with approximate locations on the actual map, the celebrity map includes addresses, summaries and links to the back story on each purchase, lease or sale. Anderson Cooper sold his West 38th Street penthouse this spring, but fans and paparazzi will find him in his new revamped (and possibly haunted) firehouse at 84 West 3rd Street when refurbishment is done. The new resident at the 38th Street duplex? It’s there too.
Along with purchase and sale histories, readers can find floor plans, photos and “Curbed” writers’ cheeky commentary.
