Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: James Brown, the UES Years; Charles Schwab Buys High; CPW Pied-a-Terre Rush!

1) We always figured James Brown for an Upper East Sider. The Godfather reportedly lived in the apartment above, at 67th and 3rd, in the '70s and '80s, a period during which he experimented with disco and Long Island iced tea. The soulfree apartment is yours for $1.495 million. [S. Johanna Robledo/NY Mag]

2) Broker to the masses, Charles Schwab, or someone in his family, paid $27 million for a 9th-floor apartment at 834 Fifth Avenue. For those keeping score at home, that was $11 million over the asking price. You, however, should continue to invest responsibly. [Josh Barbenel/Big Deal]

3) Washington Post chairman Donald Graham and his wife Mary have purchased a $4.65 million co-op at 262 Central Park West. The Observer reports that the 2000sf pad has 45 bookshelves. Sounds excessive to us, but apparently they're into print. [Max Abelson/Manhattan Transfers]

5) Joining the Grahams in the CPW crash-pad market are Hollywood producers Kathleen Kennedy (E.T., Back to the Future) and Frank Marshall (The Sixth Sense). The power duo paid $2.695 million for a 9th floor 2-bed at 120 Central Park South. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
