Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Into the West (Village)

1) Sam Shepard and Jessica Lange are bringing their theatrics to 1 Fifth Avenue, as the actor/playright and original model/actress have scooped up a three-bedroom corner apartment in the co-op building near Washington Square Park (right), which had been listed at $3.495 million. The new home is already providing inspiration for some of Shepard's newest work, including the scorching drama "Hands Off My Concrete Mounds You Stupid Bastards at the Landmarks Preservation Committee."

2) After a lengthy legal battle over the rent stabilization of her apartment in the posh Apthorp building on the Upper West Side, a court ruled that pop singer/fun enthusiast Cyndi Lauper should only have to pay $989 in rent each month. But that's not good enough, damn it, so she's going back to court to argue for her preferred amount of $508. [Newsday]
3) Divorced art magazine publisher and socialite Louise T. Blouin MacMain, #16 on a list of Britain's wealthiest women, calls Richard Meier a "great friend." Apparently friends let friends spend $4,581 a square foot for apartments in glorified glass boxes. We hear the bathroom doors are breathtaking, though. [William Neuman/Big Deal]
4) After growing weary of his oceanfront Amagansett home (too close to the plebians), and after being outbid on mansions in both East Hampton and Bridgehampton, Howard Stern finally finds a place to settle down for the summer months. He bought a 4.3-acre plot of land in Southampton for $20 million. Next up: a house to sit on it. [Braden Keil/NYPost]
