Back in the spring of 2005, Entourage star Adrian Grenier purchased a Victorian home on Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill that the listing described as in need of "some cosmetic work." Indeed—more than two years later, construction plywood is still standing. Sure, Grenier's done plenty of renovating—he's changed the exterior from a pukey salmon color to sky blue, and insulated his walls with denim—but as yet there's no sign of Grenier himself (aside from one eye-witness sighting of him with "some hot chick" at the Academy diner in Fort Greene in the fall of 2005). We suspect he's waiting for the drug trade to clear out and/or the crack den next door to go condo. On recent reconnaissance we did, however, note that window shades have been installed. Progress?
