The closest thing to zombies Norman Reedus will find in Little Chitaly will be of the grocery-shopping granny variety. But he probably knows that, given that he's lived at 136 Baxter Street (also known as the Machinery Exchange, somewhat of a celeb magnet) for three years and is now moving on up to the penthouse unit, The Real Deal reports, which he just bought for $3.8 million. The Walking Dead actor, who also appeared in cult classic Boondock Saints and its sequel, now has a 3BR/3.5BA duplex with two separate entrances, a home office, a wood-burning fireplace, and an astro-turfed 669-square-foot terrace that's full of potential. The exposed wooden beams in the bedrooms?apparently restored from the originals?are especially attractive, with the rest of the decor being unexcitingly modern. Penthouse A sold for $4 million in 2009, and it took over a year for it to get snatched up this time around since it was listed in 2012. Is this a long-awaited sign that at least one subsection of the market is cooling just a tad?
