“American Pie” and “Orange is the New Black” actor Jason Biggs married actress and author Jenny Mollen in 2008, after they met filming “My Best Friend’s Girl.” Five years later, the trendy couple bought a sprawling Tribeca loft at 288 West Street for $2.55 million, enlisting designer-to-the-stars Cliff Fong (with whom they’d worked previously on two L.A. homes) to outfit the space with a combination of modern furniture and accessories from Wayfair.com, their extensive art collection, and playful and comfortable pieces to accommodate their three-year-old son Sid–all of which blend seamlessly with the loft’s brick walls, exposed timber framing and beams, raw pipes, and open floorplan. They’ve now decided to put the apartment on the market, and it’s asking a not-especially, marked-up price of $2,995,000.
288 West Street
This two-bedroom apartment, at the condo 288 West Street in Tribeca, practically luxuriates in all its lofty details. The former timber frame loft building still retains much of its incredible interior, which has left this apartment decked out with ceiling beams, arched brick entryways, wood floors and high ceilings. It has just hit the market for $2.75 million after trying to sell earlier this year for $3.175 million.
With its cobblestone streets, quirky artists’ lofts and industrial-chic architecture, Tribeca is a hot spot for filming movies and television scenes. This past spring, we did a round up of the musicians that call Tribeca home; now we’re taking a look at the flock of actors and filmmakers who have made the move to the ‘hood’s picturesque streets.
Tribeca’s most famous resident, Robert De Niro, is often credited with transforming the neighborhood into the vibrant place we know today by opening multiple restaurants, developing property, and most notably creating the world-famous Tribeca Film Festival. In addition to De Niro, we mapped out Tribeca’s celebrity residents who are famous onscreen and behind the scenes. Ranging from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “fuzzy nap zones” with river views to Lena Dunham’s artist loft from “Tiny Furniture,” it’s clear that celebrities feel at home in Tribeca.
