Filmmaker Brian De Palma just bought a second unit at 1 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village according to city records. The famous director of “Scarface” and “Carrie” already owns an apartment on the 23rd floor of the Gold Coast building, where’s he’s lived since at least 1989, but his latest acquisition is a two-bedroom unit for which he paid $1,750,000.
1 Fifth Avenue
Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and his wife, model Patti Hansen, bought the penthouse at 1 Fifth Avenue for $10.5 million back in 2014. Putting meaning to “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” the legendary musician has now listed his Greenwich Village digs just two years later for $12.23 million, reports Curbed.
“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.
