Kelly Ripa Soho Penthouse living room

Kelly Ripa has officially unloaded her Soho penthouse, according to city records filed today. The five-bedroom beauty at 76 Crosby Street sold for $20 million, $4.5 million less than what she was asking when she first listed it in January last year. Though Ripa came up a little short, it’s worth noting that her and hubby Mark Consuelos paid just $9.5 million for it in 2005. Today’s sale is also the 6th highest ever recorded in Soho, according to CityRealty.

46 Carmine Street, Jackson Pollock, Luis D. Ortiz

You won’t find any paint-splattered masterpieces here, but you will get the exclusive bragging rights of saying you live in the former home of Jackson Pollock at 46 Carmine Street. And if that wasn’t enough of a conversation starter, the Greenwich Village building was once owned by Aaron Burr.

Million Dollar Listing New York star Luis D. Ortiz announced the $1.25 million listing via Instagram, which is not surprising considering how photogenic this one-bedroom, top-floor unit is. The 800-square-foot home boats 14-foot, Tudor-style beamed ceilings with skylights; exposed whitewashed brick walls; and a cozy fireplace.

Lots of changes are in store for hockey player Scott Gomez. Not only is he currently a free agent, but he’s put his 2,062-square-foot Chelsea penthouse on the market for $23,000 a month. The three-bedroom duplex condo at the Chelsea Mercantile, 252 Seventh Avenue, is available fully furnished, and Gomez has outfitted the pad with a mix of colorful contemporary pieces and bachelor pad-esque décor.

Whoever inks the lease for this apartment will follow in the footsteps of Nick Jonas and Marc Jonas, both former renters of the unit. The building also boasts Katie Holmes as a resident.

Jenny from the Block could be looking to move to Chelsea’s Walker Tower. According to the NYP, Jennifer Lopez was spotted scoping out apartments alongside celebrity broker Fredrik Eklund. The pair reportedly checked out an unlisted apartment and eyed the floor plans of several other units over lunch. The Post notes that J Lo’s budget is around $20 million. With that in mind, might we suggest the building’s $25M duplex penthouse?

15 Central West, Robert DeNiro, Leroy Schecter, Upper West Side real estate

Robert De Niro‘s new home may not be in his beloved Tribeca, but the full-floor pad at 15 Central Park West is one of the city’s most expensive rentals. Unit 35AB is two separate condos combined into one on the 35th floor. The 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom apartment is owned by steel magnate Leroy Schecter, who purchased the property in 2008 for $18.9 million. He originally put the condo on the market in 2012 for $95 million, then reduced it to $85 million in April 2013, and once again to $70 million in November.

De Niro and his wife Grace Hightower were displaced in 2012 when a fire ripped through their triplex at the Brentmore, 88 Central Park West. The couple has been renting in the West Village, but it looks like they wanted to return to the Upper West Side while renovations are completed on their permanent home. And they’re in good company; Alex Rodriguez and investor Henry Silverman have rented the same unit in the past.

533 Canal Street, Kirsten Dunst, Soho real estate

With her Spider Man days behind her, Kirsten Dunst has put her Soho penthouse on the rental market for $12,500 a month, according to NYDN. She bought the two-bedroom apartment at 533 Canal Street for $3.09 million in 2007, citing that she needed a break from Los Angeles. Maybe she’s looking for a little more privacy now, as fellow celebs including Casey Affleck and director Gus Van Sant have also called the building home. The slightly quirky pad is available fully or partially furnished, which is a bonus since Dunst clearly has a good eye for comfortable furniture, vintage pieces, and industrial-chic decor.

118 West 79th Street, Patrick Stewart, Upper West Side real estate

Sir Patrick Stewart of X-Men and Star Trek fame has found a buyer for his Upper West Side pied-à-terre. The two-bedroom, 1,300-square-foot co-op at 118 West 79th Street entered contract after seeing several bids. The actor put the unit on the market in June for $3.8 million. He bought the home in 2003 for $1.8 million with his then-wife Wendy Neuss, but the couple divorced shortly thereafter, and Neuss remained in the penthouse apartment.

Live like a former Nets coach—at least while Jason Kidd is in Milwaukee coaching the Bucks. Kidd’s departure comes after some dicey events involving politicking and power grabbing after just a year on the job. But rather than dumping his Aldyn pad completely in spite, Kidd has decided to rent it out for $20,000 a month. With some serious off the hook amenities, it’s no wonder why this recognized NBA All-Star purchased the Upper West Side apartment in the first place.

Everybody’s favorite Sex and the City star and her hubby just put their Greenwich Village townhouse back on the market for $22 million. After a brief disappearance in April, a new listing, held by none other than Million Dollar Listing’s Frederik Eklund and John Gomes, has emerged with a small price chop, down $3 million from its previous ask.

The beautiful five-bedroom home at 20 East 10th Street is certainly fit for a star, measuring 6,800 square feet and boasting seven fireplaces, a private garden with a Juliet balcony, two oversized skylights, 50′ long bookcases, and a full floor master bedroom with terrace—amongst many, many other luxuries. The townhouse, of course, also comes with two Carrie-worthy walk-in closets, which are worth a peek just to see what SJP has stored away.
