Hipster Pat Kiernan is no longer the only TV anchor calling Williamsburg home, as Hipster Harry Smith, formerly the host of CBS' The Early Show and currently a contributor at NBC, is—just like Kiernan before him—making the move from the Upper West Side. Smith purchased a 1,795-square-foot, 2BR, 2.5BA penthouse in The Edge for $1,837,941.25, city records show, and will soon be biking joyfully over the Williamsburg Bridge, which is something that he likes to do (biking, not necessarily over the Williamsburg Bridge), according to his Wikipedia page. The apartment was listed in May for $1,835,000, meaning that Smith paid almost three grand over the asking price for the somewhat nondescript, many-windowed penthouse. Smith's boss Brian Williams might have a thing or two to say about all of this.
