“Cheers,” “Frasier,” “Will & Grace,” “Friends”… these are just some of the ’90s sitcoms that director James E. Burrows has on his resume. The television maven and his wife, noted sitcom hairstylist Debbie Easton, have definitely met their fair share of celebrities, but it seems that now they’re looking to trade in their Wilshire Boulevard address for a more low-key lifestyle in Greenwich Village…though they are moving to prestigious 1 Fifth Avenue.

The couple picked up a one-bedroom apartment at the storied building for $4.2 million, according to city records released today. It’s definitely not up to par with Will and Grace’s elegant home or Monica and Rachel’s kitschy apartment, but it’s charming in its own right.

The major selling point of the apartment is its views, looking south over Washington Square Park and all of lower Manhattan, west across the Hudson River, and northeast to the Chrysler Building and East River bridges. The corner living room takes advantage of all three of these exposures, as does the large bedroom. The open kitchen/dining room is decidedly modern, with even more oversized windows serving as the focal point.
