We had some celebrity action at 522 West End Avenue just a couple weeks ago when we discovered that “Girls” star Zosia Mamet bought a rather unimpressive apartment in the building. And we’ve now learned from the Journal that the former home of the late Andy Rooney, legendary “60 Minutes” anchor, has hit the market for $2.385 million.

The two-bedroom, ninth-floor co-op is quite lovely, but what’s really going to attract potential buyers is the collection of Mr. Rooney’s wood art pieces–like the dining room table and headboards–on display throughout the home. He was an avid woodworker in his free time, and the staging and brokerage teams decided to utilize his creations. They’ve also included photos of Rooney and his typewriter. Unfortunately, none of these mementos come with the apartment.

When we took a look at the real estate of the stars of “Girls,” we said the characters “live in Greenpoint, not the Upper West Side.” The same cannot be said for their real-life digs, as evidenced by Zosia Mamet’s (she plays Shoshanna on the hit show) purchase of a pretty bland Upper West Side co-op. According to city records released today, she paid $1,225,000 for the two-bedroom apartment at 522 West End Avenue. We knew she was looking to relocate–she and her boyfriend listed their Bushwick house back in October, and it recently sold–but we can’t deny that we’re a little surprised by her choice.
