Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: What is This Brooklyn?

1) According to the Post, Brooklyn is no longer home to just transient crackheads and piles of garbage. Nope, now there are geniune, bona fide celebrities! Just check out this non-stalkerish list: Jennifer Connelly (Park Slope, beautiful and fragile), Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams (Boerum Hill, shop at lingerie store Andie Wee), Emily Mortimer (Cobble Hill, lost her wallet at Pacific Green grocery), Randy Harrison (Dumbo, goes to Starbucks on Front St.), Adrian Grenier (Clinton Hill, but hangs in the 'Burg [see above]), Mos Def (Dumbo), Busta Rhymes (Williamsburg, maybe), Rosie Perez (Fort Greene), John Turturro (Park Slope, parks his car on Union Street) and Paul Giamatti (Brooklyn Heights, kid loves rubber ducks). When will vendors begin selling maps to the stars' homes? [NYPost]
2) Garrison Keillor picked up a companion to his prairie home, and it's a familiar one. He bought the same 12th floor apartment in the El Dorado at 300 Central Park West that he sold in the '90s, only the price has changed a little bit. He sold it for $760,000 back then, and he paid $3.6 million for it now. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
3) It appears the sellers at 33 Charles Street have taken the four-story townhouse off the market. Those sellers? Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe. The on-the-outs couple will try to squeeze out more than the desired $8.25 million asking price with a different broker. [NYMag/S. Jhoanna Robledo]
4) Sellers: Stone Phillips unloaded his triplex penthouse at 12 West 72nd Street fot $4.45 million, a full million less than the original asking price. He'll be moving here. Mary Tyler Moore sold a co-op she has owned for decades in the San Remo on Central Park West for $6.6 million. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
5) Looks like William Neuman is pulling a Calderone. The Times' Big Deal columnist is leaving the celebrity real estate beat to cover ... transportation. The whereabouts of Braden Keil could not be verified. [Media Mob]
