Decoded: The 'Celebrity' Apartments of New York City

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where we take a word or a turn of phrase that seems to show up in an unreasonable number of listings and decipher its true meaning. If you have any ideas for us, send them to the tipline. Today's word: Celebrity.

You know it's an especially good couple of celebrities when they don't even tell you which celebrities they are. Also, that adds a fun layer of mystery. "Whose apartment do you think we just bought? Dustin Hoffman? Lady Gaga? Who knows!" If you really wanted to know, you could ask actual celebrity Russell Simmons, who lives upstairs and is having an even more difficult time selling his place than these "celebrities" are selling theirs.

The Hit Factory is great at attracting famous musicians who relish the opportunity to live in the former studio where albums like Graceland, Bad, and Born in the U.S.A. were recorded. Musicians like radio DJ-turned-MTV (that stands for Music Television) host La La, and...they're working on it.

The three principles of real estate: Location, location, and proximity to celebrity hair stylist Ric Pipino.

This isn't really fair because you could just say it about anything. Tomorrow's celebrity authors are getting drunk alone in the apartment next door. See?
