Deeds & Don'ts: $mart Celeb$

Deeds & Don'ts: $mart Celeb$

Stars: They’re just like us, right? (Oops, wrong magazine.) Unlike mere mortals, bold-faced names can really bolster their bank accounts simply by unloading a premier property. Julia Stiles recently did so, pocketing $2.7 million for her three-bedroom duplex with two wood-burning fireplaces at 310 East 15th Street (she purchased it a decade ago for $1.995 million). In SoHo, Jonah Hill’s full-floor Howard Street loft was recently listed for $12,000 a month; it boasts 13-foot ceilings and a fireplace, but no doorman expecting a holiday tip. A few blocks away, Kirsten Dunst’s Canal Street penthouse has just been snapped up by a new tenant.

Deeds & Don'ts: Ghostly Abodes

Ghoulish goings-on are not uncommon when it comes to real estate in the big, bad city. Predatory agents, surprise assessments, and untrustworthy superintendents can make urban dwelling a decidedly scary proposition. But nothing’s more frightening than the otherworldly spirits that some people believe live among us.

Deeds & Don'ts: Star-Struck Sales

Deeds & Don'ts: Star-Struck Sales

What’s jammed with celebrities and on the rise? The elevator at 155 Franklin Street in Tribeca, otherwise known as the Sugar Loaf Building. Dating from 1882 and located on a cobblestone block between Hudson and Varick streets, the condo is luring headliners left and right. Soon after Taylor Swift took up residence in the 8,300-square-foot penthouse (which she bought from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson for $19.95 million in March), Orlando Bloom reportedly scooped up a $4.875 million, 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom loft with wood-beamed ceilings on the fourth floor. Meanwhile, director Steven Soderbergh is hopping off for good, recently selling his 3,500-square-foot, third-floor apartment for $6 million.

5 New York City Condo Developments That Turn Heads

It’s model season, but those willowy beauties marching down New York’s runways for Fashion Week aren’t the only game in town. The city’s new condo developments are turning heads more than ever before. They’re tall, they’re skinny, they don’t wake up for less than $3,000 a square foot (give or take), and they’re ready for their close-ups.

Deeds & Don'ts: Yorkville, Cobble HIll and Forest Hills Gardens

Deeds & Don'ts: Yorkville, Cobble HIll and Forest Hills Gardens

Looking for the newest up-and-coming neighborhood? Go east, young man—but not the East Village or the Lower East Side. Formerly stodgy Yorkville is now the coolest kid on the block. Yorkville? Yes, the area from Third Avenue to the East River between 79th and 96th streets will soon be filled with the rumbling of the Second Avenue subway—and increased real estate prices, no doubt. The enclave has always been popular with families—especially those with children at Chapin, Brearley, the Town School, and P.S. 158—and outdoorsy types who appreciate the greenery of Carl Schurz Park.
