Maybe the neighbors were a little starstruck when Brooke Shields purchased this four-apartment Greek Revival townhouse on West 10th Street, with plans for single-family mansion conversion, in 2008. But now the stardust is wearing off. And the construction dust is settling in! The Daily News reports that locals are starting to feel a bit peeved about the 6 a.m. construction starts and the closure of the sidewalk on Shields' side of the street, and some area renters are even threatening to move out. When a group of neighbors complained to construction workers, they were told to take it up with Shields herself. But maybe Shields has just been trying to get into character? Don't mess with the process!
