Located in the Carnegie Hill Historic District in the heart of the Upper East Side, this ivy-covered 6,400-square-foot townhouse at 67 East 91st Street was built in the 1890s. The five-story home has been updated with elegant and functional 21st-century interiors–including an elevator, a greenhouse/studio, and a solarium–while retaining its turn-of-the-century charm. It was undoubtedly this quiet grandeur that won the heart of designer-author-socialite (and Anderson Cooper’s mom) Gloria Vanderbilt, who lived here in the 1980s and 90s. The classic Manhattan townhouse was recently listed for $11,995,000.

Amy Schumer is in contract to buy the Brooklyn Heights townhouse featured in the 1987 movie Moonstruck.

In 2017, 6sqft featured this charming Village townhouse at 118 West 12th Street, owned by Mitchell Lichtenstein, the son of famous pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, then listed for $25,000,000. A stunning balance between a historic 1840s home and a perfectly-curated modern art mansion made it a rare residence as unique as its former owner. The 24.5-foot-wide Greek revival home is once again on the market–this time for $29,950,000. A new $7,000,000 renovation has made the dramatic dwelling more triple-mint than its former impossibly chic version, much like the pricey neighborhood that surrounds it.

Surrounded on every side and on the roof above by 3,000 square feet of verdant planted terraces, and centered around a glass-wrapped solarium living room, the five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot condominium is indeed a New York City dream home–even if it’s no longer a secret. Schumer told the Journal she and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, are moving–likely to Brooklyn–to be closer to their son’s school.
