Perhaps tired of paying $25,000 in monthly rent, Woody Allen has reportedly snapped up an Upper East Side townhouse on East 70th Street for $15 million. Reports the Post's Braden Keil, "Once the contract closes (should we say if?), Allen plans a year-long renovation to convert the office configuration into a grand single-family residence, according to sources familiar with the deal." For their part, Brown Harris Stevens have not removed the listing from its website?probably a wise move.
