Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: LES Getting Religion?

1) Having already toured the Upper East Side to find a place to call home, Madonna must now find a place to practice her unique brand of faux-judaism. Hence, Madge will tour the retail portion of 179 Ludlow?yes that 179 Ludlow; yeah, you know the one?to see if its worthy of conversion into a Kabbalah Center. The rent on the 2,400-square-feet of space is $45,000. This all sounds very, very fake to us, but in a world where McCarren Park is the new Park Avenue, can you really count anything out? [Observer via Gawker]

2) Tiny, adorable old man Martin Scorsese has sold the four-floor townhouse he's owned for 20 years. The East 62nd Street abode was listed at $6.7 million, and here it is. It doesn't reach the coveted 20-foot-wide mark, but you do get a double parlor, two kitchens and a "gentleman's dressing room." [Branden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

3) The Upper East Side won't have Roger Goodell to kick around anymore! The NFL commish is packing up his twins and his wife, Fox News' Jane Skinner, and settling in Bronxville. They sold their 180 East End Avenue co-op for $2.725 million. [Max Abelson/Manhattan Transfers]

4) Die-hard NASCAR fans now have another reason to hate Jeff Gordon. The polished pretty boy just signed a $26,000/month lease in the Park Imperial on West 56th Street. His home at 15 Central Park West is still being built, obvs. [Keil]
