Scarano-on-the-Bowery—the shiny metal spike architected by the one and only Robert Scarano that now defines the modern thoroughfare between the Bowery Hotel and the Cooper Square Hotel—has scored a noted resident! Singer John Legend has dropped somewhere south of 2.3 million for a 1,300 square-foot floor-through one-bedroom. For Legend, the move is just around the corner from the East 3rd Street pad he's looking to unload for $1.195 million; for broker Michael Shvo, it's misty water-colored memories of the way we were.
