Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Return of the Bad MoFo

1) This one has many layers. After selling his Harlem brownstone in 1997 for $125,000, Samuel L. Jackson packed it up and headed off to California. Now, he's purchased a posh four-bedroom co-op at 63rd St. and Madison (right) for $4.8 million. Jackson bought it from retired NBA player Greg Anthony and his ex-wife, novelist Crystal McCrary Anthony. The selling agent was Corcoran's Spencer Means, the inspiration for a "slick real estate agent" character in the novel Anthony wrote with Tonya Lewis Lee, the wife of Spike Lee. Phew. Got it?

2) The Cynthia Rowley real estate saga takes a new turn, as she finally rids herself of her illuminated three-bedroom Tribeca condo for $2.3 million. The designer bought a four-unit townhouse on Perry Street last year, and when she hasn't been fighting with rent-controlled tenants there, she's been served with nonpayment liens at her old place. Let's put this mess behind us, shall we, Cyn? [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
3) Back in June the Observer reported that cartoonist Garry Trudeau and his wife Jane Pauley were outbid on a gorgeous Beekman Place triplex that was at the center of a bitter divorce. Turns out that reports of their demise have been exaggerated, because the couple indeed landed the apartment and all its fabulous amenities. Here's to you, Garry and Jane. [William Neuman/Big Deal]
4) Hugh Jackman and Damon Dash may be competing for Harvey Weinstein's old $10.6 million Mercer Street loft. Much slapping expected. [S.Jhoanna Robledo/NYMag]
