Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Courtney's Neighbor Bails

1) 30 Crosby has always appeared to be a lovely and stunning building, but why does it seem like everybody who lives there is selling? Lenny Kravitz, Courtney Love?now Love neighbor (and Royal Shakespeare Company chairman) Laurence Isaacson is selling his pied-á-terre in the building, for $6.45 million (right; the apartment, not the money). Did he tire of the mirrored wall? The 500-bottle wine cave? The weird neon thing hanging over one of his couches? The frequency of Love's 3 a.m. "sugar-borrowing" visits? [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
2)Sadly, new Yankees center fielder Johnny Damon will not be moving to Brooklyn, where he is so revered. Damon's $5.9 million offer was accepted on a 39th floor apartment in the celeb-heavy One Beacon Court, where he'll bat clean-up on the building's softball team, behind Beyoncé Knowles, Brian Williams and Jack Welch.

3) You would think that if you wrote a play that mocked co-op boards, one that was being performed just as you were trying to buy in a co-op, that might hamper your application. Not so for Charles Grodin, whose "The Right Kind of People" opened last week, around the same time he was invited to join an Upper West Side building. “All the stories come from Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue,” he says.
