15 Central Park W
New York, NY 10023

Robert De Niro may be short, but he plays big when it comes to real estate. In September the actor rented the most expensive apartment (steel magnate Leroy Schecter's 35th-floor combo) in the city's most expensive building, 15 Central Park West. Part of the combo was formerly rented by disgraced baseball star Alexander Rodriguez. De Niro's rent? Oh, $125,000/month.

2. Tom Brady/Gisele Bundchen - $40,000/Month

New York, NY 10010

Obscenely gorgeous couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen want to rent out their New York City pied-a-terre. Of course, the full-floor three-bedroom is located on the 47th floor of a previously scandal-plagued skyscraper on Madison Square Park, cost $14 million when they bought it, and can be leased for $40,000 per month (plus an extra $2,500 for furniture picked out by a star quarterback and a supermodel).

3. Janet Jackson - $35,000/Month

New York, NY 10024

Janet Jackson's ornate three-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom spread on the 34th floor of Columbus Circle's Trump International tower came up for lease in early February, asking $35,000/month. It rented three days later.

252 7th Avenue
New York, NY 10001

Hockey player Scott Gomez, formerly of the New Jersey Devils, is currently a free agent, and so too was his three-bedroom duplex penthouse in the Chelsea Mercantile building. He wanted $23,000/month for the place with a pedigree, previously rented by other celebrities: Marc Jacobs and Nick Jonas. Well, that worked, seeing as how it's no longer on the market.

5. Jason Kidd - $22,000/Month

60 Riverside Boulevard
New York, NY 10069

In September, Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd put his four-bedroom, four-bathroom condo in the Aldyn on the Upper West Side on the rental market for $22,000/month. He probably didn't need it because he's not coaching the Nets anymore, eh? Despite his checkered past, it found a tenant just fine.

6. Philip Seymour Hoffman - $10,500/Month

Copy Link
35 Bethune Street
New York, NY 10014

The West Village two-bedroom apartment formerly occupied by the late great actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died at home earlier this year in a drug-related incident, entered the rental market in March asking $10,500/month. It leased one day later.

7. Vanessa Carlton - $17,500/Month

182 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10013

Back in June, the lilting singer-songwriter put her 2,500-square-foot Soho loft, one of five units in a co-op building on Lafayette Street, on the rental market for $17,950/month. It's still up for lease, now at the slightly cheaper rate of $17,500. We spy three pianos, which seems appropriate.

8. Kirsten Dunst - $12,500/Month

533 Canal Street
New York, NY 10013

The star of Spider-Man put her lovely, fully furnished two-bedroom penthouse on the Tribeca/Hudson Square border on the rental market in September, asking $12,500/month. Yeah, someone snatched that up.

9. The de Blasios - $5K/Month

442 11th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11215

The First Family of New York moved to Gracie Mansion in June, leaving their Park Slope home behind. The de Blasios put the 3BR/1BA on the rental market in October for $4,975/month, and it leased, oh, in about a week "to an area couple who says they really just wanted more space and a garden."

10. Demi Moore - $75M

145 Central Park West
New York, NY 10023

Despite the fact that there is no actual listing, actress Demi Moore wants to sell her "stunning" triplex in the celeb-favorite San Remo for a whopping $75 million. The price tag apparently also includes a ground-floor two-bedroom. Please, Demi, give us a peek at the place?

11. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - $44M

Copy Link
740 Park Ave, New York, NY 10021
New York, NY 10021

In one of the ritziest apartment buildings in the city came this ritzy, art-filled listing. In July, hedge fund guy David Ganek put his incredible duplex in 740 Park on the market for $44 million. The apartment, most notably, was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis from ages two through seven (her grandfather was also the developer of the building in 1929). The ask hasn't budged since it listed. Maybe throw in a Warhol, Ganek?

12. Simon Fuller - $38M

Copy Link
768 5th Ave
New York, NY 10019

In October, the man who invented "American Idol" and also the Spice Girls, sold off adjacent three Plaza apartments—units 901, 902, and 903—worth $38 million. Yes, that would be Simon Fuller. Unfortunately, there are no images of the apartments; only a floorplan for unit 901. Combined 901-903 sold for $33.2M, the sum that made this list, while separated 902 also got plucked up for $4.8M. For the anonymous seller, we imagine another combo is in the cards.

13. Bon Jovi - $37.5M

Copy Link
158 Mercer Street
New York, NY 10012

After being de-listed in January of 2014, Jon Bon Jovi's Soho penthouse returned in April with new listing photos, a new broker, and a new asking price. Back in March 2013, the rock star originally wanted $42 million for the enormous duplex. Six months later, the price was chopped to $39.9M. Then came the January re-listing for $37.5M, and, finally broker Leonard Steinberg switched companies and re-re-listed the place with a slew of new photos and the same ask. It's co-listed with Elliman, and, yup, STILL on the market with that ask.

14. Lauren Bush Lauren - $28.5M

Copy Link
755 Greenwich Street
New York, NY 10014

The mystery buyers who shelled out $28.5 million for photographer Annie Leibovitz's trio of West Village townhouses emerged as Lauren Bush Lauren, granddaughter of George H.W. Bush and niece of George W. Bush, and her husband David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren. Leibovitz accumulated the very, very lovely 13-fireplace spread for $6.1 million between 2002 and 2003. Whoa, profit.

15. Lauren Bacall - $26M

Copy Link
1 West 72nd Street
New York, NY 10023

Beautiful starlet Lauren Bacall passed away this year at the age of 89, and subsequently, her nine-room, Central Park-facing apartment at the Dakota entered the real estate market for the first time in decades. Bacall bought it back in 1961 for a couple of tens of thousands of dollars (reports vary from between $28,000 and $48,000), and it's now asking $26,000,000.

16. Elie Tahari - $25M

Copy Link
15 Central Park W
New York, NY 10023

The October headline read: "Elie Tahari Buys a Boring $25M Combo In 15 Central Park West." And that about sums it up. The fashion designer funneled some of the funds garnered from his 1980s popularization of the women's pantsuit into two adjacent apartments on the ninth-floor of esteemed rich-people haven 15 Central Park West.

17. Alice Walton - $25M

Copy Link
515 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

A philanthropist and the world's 14th wealthiest person, Walmart heiress Alice Walton, paid $25 million for a duplex condo on the Upper East Side. The apartment has 52 windows, and a real estate-savvy prior owner.

18. Spike Lee - $24.5M

Copy Link
153 East 63rd Street
New York, NY 10065

This year, anti-gentrification pundit Spike Lee officially put his incredibly historic Upper East Side townhouse on the market. He bought the 8,292-square-foot home from Jasper Johns (yes, that one) in 1998 for $16.6 million. In January, he wanted $32 million. In April, the price came down to $28.5M, and we got another look inside via different photos. In June, the ask dropped even further, to $24.5M. Maybe history and celebrity don't help when the house is this pricey?

19. Jennifer Lopez - $20.2M

Copy Link
21 East 26th Street
New York, NY 10010

Though the deed doesn't have the name to prove it, but an LLC intead, the buyer of The Whitman's absolutely bonkers penthouse facing Madison Square Park (personal putting green included) is reportedly Jenny From The Block herself. At The Whitman, which only has four apartments but a lot of star power, Lopez would live above Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. The price? $20,161,350.

20. Taylor Swift - $20M

Copy Link
155 Franklin Street
New York, NY 10013

And the biggest sale of the year goes to the queen of the pop music scene, Ms. Taylor Swift. She dropped $20 million on Lord of the Ring's director Peter Jackson's 8,300-square-foot Tribeca penthouse, which came with 6,000 square feet of outdoor space. The heavily beamed space aside, it apparently "sounds like it was decorated like a serial killer." For one thing, she has personalized candles that say "Taybeca" inside of Tribeca. Tay-Tay, welcome to New York.

21. Kelly Ripa - $20M

Copy Link
76 Crosby Street
New York, NY 10012

TV personality Kelly Ripa and her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, originally listed their Soho penthouse for $24.5 million in January of 2013. It didn't sell at that price, so the five-bedroom with a capacious outdoor terrace and hot tub endured a series of PriceChops before finally entering contract in May and closing for $20M in September.

22. Sarah Jessica Parker/Matthew Broderick - $20M

Copy Link
20 East 10th Street
New York, NY 10003

Celebrity real estate power couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick cut the asking price of their Greenwich Village townhouse... all the way down to $19.95 million. The 25-foot-wide, seven-fireplace home, which the couple renovated but apparently never lived in, was asking as much as $25 million at one point, but it's now veering dangerously close to the $19 million they paid in 2011.

23. Richard Born - $18M

. The co-op, featured on the cover of Architectural Digest in 1991, was listed in April of 2013 for $25 million, got PriceChopped a month later to $19.95 million, and ultimately sold to Born for $18M. Whew.

24. Jon Stewart - $17.5M

Copy Link
161 Hudson Street
New York, NY 10013

Jon Stewart originally paid $5,800,000 back in 2005 for this 5,802-square-foot duplex penthouse in Tribeca. Though it was never publicly on the market, the penthouse loft—which has 40 windows, three exposures, a 600-square-foot private terrace and a 1,200-square-foot roof—sold in November for $17.5 million. That's a 201.1 percent profit. The name of the LLC he used to officially offload it? Now that's a funny story.

25. Hal Prince/L.A. Reid - $16.5M

Copy Link
515 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

When music mogul/"X Factor" judge L.A. Reid's full-floor apartment in 515 Park Avenue went into contract in December of 2013, who would have thought the buyer would turn out to be none other than the craziest apartment decorator in the game, legendary Broadway producer Hal Prince? Well, it was, and Prince paid $16.5 million for Reid's lair. Here's hoping he'll do it up real colorfully, like that theatrical townhouse he sold in 2013.

26. Marv Albert - $14.9M

Copy Link
150 Columbus Avenue
New York, NY 10023

Famed sportscaster Marv Albert has owned a sprawling duplex penthouse near Lincoln Center since 1996, when he purchased it for $2.393 million. In May, he listed it for $16.5M, hoping the kitted-out 1,500-square-foot terrace might lure a buyer. It did, by October, but only after the price had been chopped to $14.9 million. The unit is still in contract, so the final sale price is TBD.

27. Deepak Chopra - $14.5M

Copy Link
66 East 11th Street
New York, NY 10003

Joining Leonardo DiCaprio at the health-obsessed Delos building in the Village is holistic health and New Age guru Deepak Chopra, who spent $14.5 million for a 3,663-square-foot 3BR/2.5BA home.

28. Luciano Pavarotti - $13.7M

Copy Link
150 Central Park South
New York, NY 10019

Seven years after his death, the estate of portly Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti is selling his 23rd floor pied-à-terre at Hampshire House, the schmancy co-op building overlooking Central Park. The price tag of $13.7 million must be a bit high for some—or buyers don't appreciate what Pavarotti did, that it's "within walking distance—and eyesight—of the Met"—since it's still on the market four months after listing.

29. Mary-Kate Olsen/Olivier Sarkozy - $13.5M

Copy Link
228 East 49th Street
New York, NY 10017

In one of the most high-profile sales of the year, an absolutely ridiculous five-bedroom townhousethat entered the market in April of 2013 sold—to none other than pint-sized fashionista Mary-Kate Olsen and her older beau, Olivier Sarkozy. The bonkers house includes the following: 1) a portico, loggia, and a private garden with fountain; 2) a hall of mirrors; 3) a ballroom; 4) a rooftop exercise pool; 5) a built-in garage; 6) an artist's studio; and 7) an elevator. Their brand-new love nest cost $13.5 million, and they're planning a reno.

30. Bruce Willis - $13M

300 Central Park West
New York, NY 10024

Back at the Upper West Side celebrity magnet, the El Dorado, action star Bruce Willis put his three-bedroom on the market for $13 million—and found a buyer in less than a week. Willis and his model wife bought the place less than two years ago for $8.695M from U2 bassist Adam Clayton, but they've apparently given it a renovation since then. More photos? Over here.

31. Jonathan Safran Foer - $13M

Brooklyn, NY 11215

Enter Jonathan Safran Foer's extremely nice and incredibly expensive limestone townhouse in Park Slope, which he and his now-separated wife, writer Nicole Krauss, put on the market for $14.5 million in October of 2013. The Brooklyn townhouse market may be hot, but not that hot, and it re-listed in June for a discounted $13 million. The pretty, pretty place went off the market a week ago.

32. Annie Leibovitz - $11.25M

Copy Link
88 Central Park West
New York, NY 10023

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz parted ways with her massive West Village compound in February, when the trio of townhouses sold for $28.5M to the former president's niece Lauren Bush Lauren and her Ralph Lauren-progeny husband David Lauren. A few months later, the profit-making artiste "downsized" by shelling out $11.25 million for a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex at The Brentmore on Central Park West.

33. Simon Cowell - $10.85M

34. Keith Richards - $10.5M

1 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10003

The Rolling Stones guitarist and wife Patti Hansen certainly found satisfaction in their real estate search, which culminated in February with the purchase of a previously combined four-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse on Fifth Avenue near Washington Square Park. He and his wife paid $10.5 million; the apartment had been on the market since December 2012 and suffered a few PriceChops since then.

35. Leonardo DiCaprio - $10M

66 East 11th Street
New York, NY 10003

As of this summer, Leonardo DiCaprio officially owns a $10 million 2BR/2.5BA condo in the wellness-conscious Delos building in Greenwich Village that he helped develop. For die-hard Leo fans with $40 million to spare, the Delos's penthouse is still up for grabs.

36. Michael Stipe - $9.6M

533 Canal Street
New York, NY 10013

The bald man who was once REM's frontman before the band broke up, Michael Stipe also broke up with his penthouse apartment at the border of Tribeca and Hudson Square. He netted $9.6 million, after originally listing the duplex back in June of 2012 for $10.95 million. Before that, in 2007, he bought the apartment for $5.75 million from actor Casey Affleck. It's (finally) the end of Canal Street for Micael Stipe.

37. Rosie O'Donnell - $9M

New York, NY 10011

After a year and a half on the market, in December comedian and talk show maven Rosie O'Donnell finally unloaded her Greenwich Village penthouse for $9 million. It's a duplex in a former St. Vincent's Hospital building, and O'Donnell was originally aiming high with an $11M ask.

38. Meredith Vieira - $8.87M

300 Central Park West
New York, NY 10024

The woman who created The View just paid $8.865 million (that's about $200K over asking) for one of the penthouse units at the El Dorado, which is pretty much a celebrity magnet. The three-bedroom apartment Vieira has two giant terraces. Also on the deed is her husband, CBS journalist Richard Cohen. Photos, this way.

39. Holly Hunter - $8.7M

43 5th Avenue

In February, Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter—who has notably appeared in The Piano, The Firm, and Thirteen—has put her lower Fifth Avenue pad on the market for $8.7 million. The very charming place got PriceChopped in March, to $8.25M, and finally sold in July for $7.6M.

40. Drew Barrymore - $8.3M

Copy Link
830 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10021

It was rumored in October 2013 that actress Drew Barrymore had gone into contract on a 4BR/4BA duplex on the Upper East Side. She blew by the co-op board with flying colors, which means Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman are the proud owners of a nine-room prewar Park Avenue apartment, for which they paid roughly the $8.3 million asking price.

41. Meg Ryan/Hank Azaria - $8M

Copy Link
84 Mercer Street
New York, NY 10012

In August, actress Meg Ryan bought actor Hank Azaria's 4,000-square-foot Soho loft for $8 million. Before Azaria, the loft was owned by artist Cindy Sherman, so this apartment must have some kind of Celebrities Only policy. Azaria, luckily, has a new, very nice place to live, since he bought a $9.2 million co-op on Central Park West a few months prior to this transaction.

42. Leonard DiCaprio - $8M

Copy Link
2 River Terrace
Manhattan, NY

Leonardo DiCaprio: he acts; he buys copious amounts of real estate. Just months after DiCaprio bought into the health-centric Delos building in the Village, he also snagged the two-bedroom unit next to the 2 River Terrace apartment he's occupied since 2008. That's $10M spent at the Delos, and $8M in Battery Park City. Must be nice to be a Wolf of Wall Street actor.

43. Michelle Williams - $7.5M

126 Hoyt Street
Brooklyn, NY 11217

Michelle Williams bought an "insanely beautiful" Boerum Hill house with the late Heath Ledger back in 2005 for $3.6 million. With plans to move to LA for more acting opportunities, Williams put the six-bedroom on the market back in September for $7.5M. It just sold for a whopping $8.8 million because, well, look at it.

Former Yankees (and Mets, but whatever) pitcher and current YES Network analyst David Cone put his four-bed, three-and-a-half-bath Upper East Side apartment on the market in July.

He paid $6,420,000 for the 3BR/3.5BA apartment, which comes with a key to a private garden and is just one of the high-end residences molded out of the 19th-century building.

47. Eric Lindros - $6M

Former all-star hockey player Eric Lindros would like to be the latest famous person to depart celebrity haven 1 Morton Square. He listed his 3BR/3.5BA in March for $6.75M, and it remains on the market after a late November PriceChop to an even $6 million.

48. Steven Soderbergh - $6M

Copy Link
155 Franklin Street
New York, NY 10013

In June, director Steven Soderbergh put his three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at Tribeca's 155 Franklin—home to Taylor Swift and Orlando Bloom—for $6 million. He bought the place for $130,000 less than that less than a year ago, knowing full well a gut renovation was sorely needed. But maybe the Swift/Bloom barrage meant too many big egos names for one little address. The unit is in contract.

49. Bob Gaudio - $6M

145 Central Park West
New York, NY 10023

Four Seasons vocalist, keyboard player, and songwriter Bob Gaudio and his wife Judy, who actually co-wrote the catchy ditty "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" as well as "Who Loves You," tossed their San Remo two-bedroom, two-bath on the market for $5.95 million in July.

241 East 52nd Street
New York, NY 10022

An East 52nd Street townhouse that once belonged to R&B singer/composer/producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds hit the market for $5.25 million in February. The basement recording studio must've sealed the deal for MetLife exec Ricardo A. Anzaldua, who paid $5M for the place in July. Or not, since he's going to use it as a wine cellar.

52. Frank Sinatra - $5M

530 East 72nd Street
New York, NY 10021

The Upper East Side penthouse that was once the home of Frank Sinatra was having an awfully hard time selling after the current owner, a Long Island car insurance mogul named Penny Hart, renovated it with an authentic Apple Store staircase and checkerboard inlaid flooring. Originally listed for $7.7 million in 2012, it had its price hacked down to $5.595 million in 2013, and in June of 2014 was PriceChopped again, down to $4.995 million. But lo, it entered contract today. Let's wait for public records to see what the final sale price is.

53. Orlando Bloom - $5M

155 Franklin Street

Tribeca's 155 Franklin is so full of action this year, what with Steven Soderbergh selling and Taylor Swift buying. Then there's sometimes-elf Orlando Bloom, who bought a three-bedroom loft there in June for $4.875 million. Those beamed ceilings really do it for celebrities, eh?

In November, the 33-year-old hotel heiress—who is also a DJ, perfume purveyor, and overall "rich girl" (hey, the shirt says it, not us)—paid $4.9 million for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse near Astor Place. The duplex with a roof deck is one of just four apartments in the Broadway McKenna building, which was converted to luxury apartments earlier this year. Let's hope it fits her seven dogs.

56. Lena Dunham - $4.89M

30 Henry Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

The tattooed Girls creator (and her boyfriend, Fun frontman Jack Antonoff) shelled out $4,887,600 for a four-bedroom apartment in a brand-new Brooklyn Heights building. Dunham bought at 30 Henry Street, a.k.a. the Brooklyn Daily Eagle's former offices, which were razed to make way for this five-unit condo building called The Heights. As for the $500,000 Brooklyn Heights one-bedroom she owned before? Jack's sister, fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, is subleasing it.

It may be too soon to tell how basketball legend Phil Jackson is doing in his new position as New York Knicks President, but he's doing great in his new position as Guy Looking For a New York City Apartment, since in August he landed a three-bed, three-bath co-op in Midtown. Jackson paid $4.85 million, just under the original $4.995 million asking price.

58. Alan Cumming - $4.65M

In January, actor Alan Cumming bought an old East Village townhouse for $4.65 million. Before he nabbed it, the four-story, 20-foot-wide house had changed hands only once in the past 70 years. The house was listed in August of 2013 for $4.8 million and later upped its ask to $5.1 million. Cumming got a nice discount there.

59. Adam Levine/Behati Prinsloo - $4.55M

New York, NY 10012

In August, the rumor went as follows: a pair of newlyweds—Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo—were reportedly in contract to purchase a classic Soho loft. The listing showed lots of columns and a $4.55 million ask; the deed, dated a week later, shows that an LLC named ALBP Property closed on the 3BR/2BA for 4,500,000. A(dam)L(evine)B(ehati)P(rinsloo). Gotcha.

Bronx, NY 10471

The greatest celebrity real estate discovery of the year was the Fieldston home of subway-famous dermatologist Dr. Jonathan Zizmor. His 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean Revival mansion, which has been on the market for more than two years, was initially asking $4.3 million; it's since been re-listed with a new brokerage, and new pictures for $3.595 million. Still no takers?

61. Anne Hathaway - $4M

1 Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

After floundering on and off the market since September of 2013, Les Misérables actress Anne Hathaway has finally unloaded her $4.25 million loft in Dumbo's famed Clocktower Building. Hathaway reportedly used the 2,592-square-foot two-bedroom as, quite possibly, the largest walk-in-closet in all of New York City.

62. Neil Patrick Harris - $4M

Last year, Neil Patrick Harris paid a record-setting $4 million for a four-story, 8,000-square-foot townhouse at 2036 Fifth Avenue in Harlem. This summer, he, his partner, and his two kids moved in—and are currently mid-renovation. (It's apparently not fun, or so says the hilarious NPH.)

63. John Mayer - $3.9M

225 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10012

The celeb-studded condo building at 225 Lafayette Street, at the border of Soho and Nolita, lost at least one important resident. Singer-songwriter/semi-professional woo-er John Mayer sold his 2BR/2.5BA corner unit for $3,910,000. He bought back in 2005 for $2,173,690—not a bad profit.

64. Sir Patrick Stewart - $3.8M

Copy Link
118 West 79th Street
New York, NY 10024

Star Trek impresario Patrick Stewart steered his erstwhile (and woefully boring) Upper West Side pied-a-terre onto the market in June, asking $3,795,000. Stewart and his then-wife, TV producer Wendy Neuss, bought the co-op in 2003 for $1.8 million; Neuss had been living here full-time. It sold a few weeks ago for $3.82 million—over ask, probably due to bidding war between two Trekkies dying to own that landscaped wraparound terrace.

65. Jonah Hill - $3.8M

27 Howard Street
New York, NY 10013

Well, that was a bait-and-switch. Back in August, Very Serious Actor Jonah Hill listed his Very Serious Soho Loft, for which he paid $2.65 million only two years ago, for $3.795 million. Then he took it off the market. What a let-down.

66. Aliya LeeKong - $3.75M

374 Washington Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11238

The gorgeous 1880 Clinton Hill townhouse once owned by the great jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis will now be home to another great: Aliya LeeKong, culinary creative director and a chef at the Michelin-starred Junoon. LeeKong and her husband paid the full ask of $3.75 million.

67. Jim Parsons - $3.6M

36 Gramercy Park East
New York, NY 10003

Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper, err, Jim Parsons bought not one, but two apartments at the Gramercy Park condo conversion where he already owns two other places. The most recent buys are a penthouse for $2.8 million, and another unit for $815,000. Parsons, who has purchased all the homes along with his boyfriend Todd Spiewak, first bought in the building back in 2011, and that was a 12th-floor two-bedroom for $1.8 million. Later, the pair bought another place for $2.8 million on the same floor. That's a total of $8.2M in purchases within four years.

68. Deepak Chopra - $3.5M

Because New Age guru Deepak Chopra dropped a ton of money ($14.5M!) on an apartment at Greenwich Village's "wellness-centric" building called the Delos, naturally he had to get rid of his 69th-floor apartment at the Park Imperial. After two years on the market, he finally bagged $3.5 million for the two-bed, which he purchased back in 2003 for $1.75 million.

69. Liam Gallagher - $3.5M

The lead singer of 1990's Britpop band Oasis would like you to buy his Union Jack-draped Essex House apartment, thank you very much. Over the summer when the 17th-floor two-bedroom listed, it asked $4 million, but the ask has since dropped to $3.5M, and it went off the market just before Christmas.

70. Tamara Tunie - $3.5M

Actress Tamara Tunie, best known as the medical examiner on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," is upholding the fine tradition of "Law & Order" stars owning and later selling New York City real estate by listing her Hamilton Heights townhouse. The five-story home million originally wanted $3.75 million; in November, the ask was chopped to $3.5 million.

Actor B.D. Wong, best known for his role as Dr. George Huang on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, took seven years to fully renovate the 2,950-square-foot Noho loft he purchased in 2005 for $1.25 million. This spring, he decided to part with the eclectically decorated 3BR/2BA pad, and it sold quickly for the full $3.25M ask.

"Grandmother of performance art" Marina Abramovic bought a two-bedroom condo in Soho's Urban Glass House last April for $2.65 million. Then, after a little more than a year, she sold it for $2.995 million (the full asking price). And, curtain.

Actor Willem Dafoe got rid of his rather nice West Village co-op to the tune of $2.875 million. Dafoe and his wife, Italian actress Giada Colagrande, purchased the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home for $1.6 million in 2005, but upgraded to a larger $3.99 million penthouse on nearby Jane Street in November. The Perry Street apartment was originally listed for $3.1 million.

Real estate scion Robert De Niro lives in a $125,000-per-month 15 Central Park West apartment. It makes sense, then, that he bought this comparably dinky West Village penthouse, which cost $2.8 million, for his daughter and co-deed-signer Drena. The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom apartment has a wood-burning fireplace and 13-foot beamed ceilings.

77. Ken Burns - $2.75M

In May, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns (who is so well-known that he has an effect named after him) paid $2.75 million for a 3BR/2.5BA in Richard Meier's On Prospect Park. Burns lives in New Hampshire, so the glassy apartment will be occupied by his daughter and her fiance.

After owning a pretty blah Upper West Side co-op for eight years, actress Helen Hunt—of As Good As It Gets, What Women Want, and more—sold the three-bedroom pad for $2.6 million, making a measly $155,000 profit. It's been on and off the market since 2011, so maybe she was just glad to sell the thing.

80. Kristen Wiig - $2.59M

That was quick. A mere two weeks after comedian Kristen Wiig, of SNL and Bridesmaids fame, listed her two-bedroom Soho loft for $2.59 million, the apartment already went into contract. The listing says sold, though the transaction hasn't yet hit public record, so we don't know the final sale price.

Nate Ruess of pop band Fun, responsible for such radio anthems as We Are Young and Carry On, has picked up a new Noho pad. The frontman snagged a $2.55 million two-bedroom apartment right near the pop music experts that they call NYU students these days.

Australian supermodel Elle "The Body" Macpherson doffed her two-bedroom, two-bathroom pied-a-terre on the Upper East Side. She purchased the large one-bedroom in the heyday of her career, presumably for less than the $2.4 million it sold for in October.

25 Murray Street

Former New York Giant and current talk show host Michael Strahan finallysold off his Tribeca loft for $2.3 million. He tried listing twice before it found a buyer. Strahan bought the two-bedroom, two-bathroom pied-a-terre in 2008 for $1.66 million with plans to renovate, but that never came to be. Raking in a $640,000 profit for doing nothing isn't half bad.

84. Moby - $2M

After 18 years, electronic music-maker and real estate mobul (get it?) finally sold his "tiny" Nolita crash pad, purchased in 1996 for a meager $215,750. Following a well-publicized rant about NYC's expense and exclusivity, he netted $1.95 million for the Mott Street one-bedroom with a sleeping loft, earning him nearly a $1.5 million profit.

In January, 26-year-old pillow-lipped Rhodes Scholar Ronan Farrow—better known as the offspring of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow—dished out $1.495 million for a two-bedroom, two-bath condo on the Upper West Side. He has his own show on MSNBC, so it was probably time he had his own apartment, too.

The adorable little fifth-floor walkup in the West Village where Jackson Pollock once briefly resided in the 1940s hit the market in September asking $1.25 million, and it quickly has found a buyer.

The purchase means that the Fallons now own 1/7th of the whole building.

Robert De Niro may be short, but he plays big when it comes to real estate. In September the actor rented the most expensive apartment (steel magnate Leroy Schecter's 35th-floor combo) in the city's most expensive building, 15 Central Park West.

The apartment, most notably, was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis from ages two through seven (her grandfather was also the developer of the building in 1929).

Unfortunately, there are no images of the apartments; only a floorplan for unit 901. Combined 901-903 sold for $33.2M, the sum that made this list, while separated 902 also got plucked up for $4.8M. For the anonymous seller, we imagine another combo is in the cards.

Back in March 2013, the rock star originally wanted $42 million for the enormous duplex. Six months later, the price was chopped to $39.9M. Then came the January re-listing for $37.5M, and, finally broker Leonard Steinberg switched companies and re-re-listed the place with a slew of new photos and the same ask.

In April, the price came down to $28.5M, and we got another look inside via different photos. In June, the ask dropped even further, to $24.5M.

Though it was never publicly on the market, the penthouse loft—which has 40 windows, three exposures, a 600-square-foot private terrace and a 1,200-square-foot roof—sold in November for $17.5 million. That's a 201.1 percent profit. The name of the LLC he used to officially offload it? Now that's a funny story.

Seven years after his death, the estate of portly Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti is selling his 23rd floor pied-à-terre at Hampshire House, the schmancy co-op building overlooking Central Park. The price tag of $13.7 million must be a bit high for some—or buyers don't appreciate what Pavarotti did, that it's "within walking distance—and eyesight—of the Met"—since it's still on the market four months after listing.

29. Mary-Kate Olsen/Olivier Sarkozy - $13.5M

228 East 49th Street, New York, NY 10017

In one of the most high-profile sales of the year, an absolutely ridiculous five-bedroom townhousethat entered the market in April of 2013 sold—to none other than pint-sized fashionista Mary-Kate Olsen and her older beau, Olivier Sarkozy. The bonkers house includes the following: 1) a portico, loggia, and a private garden with fountain; 2) a hall of mirrors; 3) a ballroom; 4) a rooftop exercise pool; 5) a built-in garage; 6) an artist's studio; and 7) an elevator. Their brand-new love nest cost $13.5 million, and they're planning a reno.

300 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

Back at the Upper West Side celebrity magnet, the El Dorado, action star Bruce Willis put his three-bedroom on the market for $13 million—and found a buyer in less than a week. Willis and his model wife bought the place less than two years ago for $8.695M from U2 bassist Adam Clayton, but they've apparently given it a renovation since then. More photos? Over here.

31. Jonathan Safran Foer - $13M

646 2nd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215

Enter Jonathan Safran Foer's extremely nice and incredibly expensive limestone townhouse in Park Slope, which he and his now-separated wife, writer Nicole Krauss, put on the market for $14.5 million in October of 2013. The Brooklyn townhouse market may be hot, but not that hot, and it re-listed in June for a discounted $13 million. The pretty, pretty place went off the market a week ago.

32. Annie Leibovitz - $11.25M

88 Central Park West, New York, NY 10023

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz parted ways with her massive West Village compound in February, when the trio of townhouses sold for $28.5M to the former president's niece Lauren Bush Lauren and her Ralph Lauren-progeny husband David Lauren. A few months later, the profit-making artiste "downsized" by shelling out $11.25 million for a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex at The Brentmore on Central Park West.

In June, television mogul and curmudgeon Simon Cowell purchased a three-bedroom home for his new family (a.k.a. a $10.85 million "love nest") at Peter Pennoyer's prewar-looking new construction project on the Upper East Side.

34. Keith Richards - $10.5M

1 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10003

The Rolling Stones guitarist and wife Patti Hansen certainly found satisfaction in their real estate search, which culminated in February with the purchase of a previously combined four-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse on Fifth Avenue near Washington Square Park. He and his wife paid $10.5 million; the apartment had been on the market since December 2012 and suffered a few PriceChops since then.

35. Leonardo DiCaprio - $10M

66 East 11th Street, New York, NY 10003

As of this summer, Leonardo DiCaprio officially owns a $10 million 2BR/2.5BA condo in the wellness-conscious Delos building in Greenwich Village that he helped develop. For die-hard Leo fans with $40 million to spare, the Delos's penthouse is still up for grabs.

36. Michael Stipe - $9.6M

533 Canal Street, New York, NY 10013

The bald man who was once REM's frontman before the band broke up, Michael Stipe also broke up with his penthouse apartment at the border of Tribeca and Hudson Square. He netted $9.6 million, after originally listing the duplex back in June of 2012 for $10.95 million. Before that, in 2007, he bought the apartment for $5.75 million from actor Casey Affleck. It's (finally) the end of Canal Street for Micael Stipe.

37. Rosie O'Donnell - $9M

130 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

After a year and a half on the market, in December comedian and talk show maven Rosie O'Donnell finally unloaded her Greenwich Village penthouse for $9 million. It's a duplex in a former St. Vincent's Hospital building, and O'Donnell was originally aiming high with an $11M ask.

38. Meredith Vieira - $8.87M

300 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

The woman who created The View just paid $8.865 million (that's about $200K over asking) for one of the penthouse units at the El Dorado, which is pretty much a celebrity magnet. The three-bedroom apartment Vieira has two giant terraces. Also on the deed is her husband, CBS journalist Richard Cohen. Photos, this way.

39. Holly Hunter - $8.7M

43 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10003

In February, Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter—who has notably appeared in The Piano, The Firm, and Thirteen—has put her lower Fifth Avenue pad on the market for $8.7 million. The very charming place got PriceChopped in March, to $8.25M, and finally sold in July for $7.6M.

40. Drew Barrymore - $8.3M

830 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10021

It was rumored in October 2013 that actress Drew Barrymore had gone into contract on a 4BR/4BA duplex on the Upper East Side. She blew by the co-op board with flying colors, which means Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman are the proud owners of a nine-room prewar Park Avenue apartment, for which they paid roughly the $8.3 million asking price.

New York, NY 10021

41. Meg Ryan/Hank Azaria - $8M

84 Mercer Street, New York, NY 10012

In August, actress Meg Ryan bought actor Hank Azaria's 4,000-square-foot Soho loft for $8 million. Before Azaria, the loft was owned by artist Cindy Sherman, so this apartment must have some kind of Celebrities Only policy. Azaria, luckily, has a new, very nice place to live, since he bought a $9.2 million co-op on Central Park West a few months prior to this transaction.

New York, NY 10012

42. Leonard DiCaprio - $8M

2 River Terrace, Manhattan, NY

Leonardo DiCaprio: he acts; he buys copious amounts of real estate. Just months after DiCaprio bought into the health-centric Delos building in the Village, he also snagged the two-bedroom unit next to the 2 River Terrace apartment he's occupied since 2008. That's $10M spent at the Delos, and $8M in Battery Park City. Must be nice to be a Wolf of Wall Street actor.

43. Michelle Williams - $7.5M

126 Hoyt Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Michelle Williams bought an "insanely beautiful" Boerum Hill house with the late Heath Ledger back in 2005 for $3.6 million. With plans to move to LA for more acting opportunities, Williams put the six-bedroom on the market back in September for $7.5M. It just sold for a whopping $8.8 million because, well, look at it.

45. David Cone - $6.5M

151 East 85th Street, New York, NY 10028

Former Yankees (and Mets, but whatever) pitcher and current YES Network analyst David Cone put his four-bed, three-and-a-half-bath Upper East Side apartment on the market in July. The asking price was, and is still holding strong at, $6.495 million, almost double the $3.76 million Cone paid for the place in 2011.

46. Kevin Huvane - $6.4M

455 West 20th Street, New York, NY 10011

Earlier this year, Los Angeles-based Kevin Huvane, a.k.a. "Badass Hollywood Agent Extraordinaire," bought a pied-a-terre at the new-old General Theological Seminary condo conversion in West Chelsea. He paid $6,420,000 for the 3BR/3.5BA apartment, which comes with a key to a private garden and is just one of the high-end residences molded out of the 19th-century building.

47. Eric Lindros - $6M

1 Morton Street, New York, NY 10014

Former all-star hockey player Eric Lindros would like to be the latest famous person to depart celebrity haven 1 Morton Square. He listed his 3BR/3.5BA in March for $6.75M, and it remains on the market after a late November PriceChop to an even $6 million.

1 Morton Street
New York, NY 10014

48. Steven Soderbergh - $6M

155 Franklin Street, New York, NY 10013

In June, director Steven Soderbergh put his three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at Tribeca's 155 Franklin—home to Taylor Swift and Orlando Bloom—for $6 million. He bought the place for $130,000 less than that less than a year ago, knowing full well a gut renovation was sorely needed. But maybe the Swift/Bloom barrage meant too many big egos names for one little address. The unit is in contract.

155 Franklin Street

49. Bob Gaudio - $6M

145 Central Park West, New York, NY 10023

Four Seasons vocalist, keyboard player, and songwriter Bob Gaudio and his wife Judy, who actually co-wrote the catchy ditty "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" as well as "Who Loves You," tossed their San Remo two-bedroom, two-bath on the market for $5.95 million in July. The couple purchased the place for $3.65 million back in 2007. It was on the market until a day ago.

50. Debra Messing - $5.5M

3 East 84th Street, New York, NY 10028

In November, Brooklyn-born actress Debra Messing, best known for her role on Will & Grace, made a move to the Upper East Side, paying $5.45 million for a lovely full-floor co-op on East End Avenue and 84th Street. Photos? Right here.

51. Babyface - $5.25M

241 East 52nd Street, New York, NY 10022

An East 52nd Street townhouse that once belonged to R&B singer/composer/producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds hit the market for $5.25 million in February. The basement recording studio must've sealed the deal for MetLife exec Ricardo A. Anzaldua, who paid $5M for the place in July. Or not, since he's going to use it as a wine cellar.

241 East 52nd Street
New York, NY 10022

52. Frank Sinatra - $5M

530 East 72nd Street, New York, NY 10021

The Upper East Side penthouse that was once the home of Frank Sinatra was having an awfully hard time selling after the current owner, a Long Island car insurance mogul named Penny Hart, renovated it with an authentic Apple Store staircase and checkerboard inlaid flooring. Originally listed for $7.7 million in 2012, it had its price hacked down to $5.595 million in 2013, and in June of 2014 was PriceChopped again, down to $4.995 million. But lo, it entered contract today. Let's wait for public records to see what the final sale price is.

53. Orlando Bloom - $5M

155 Franklin Street, New York, NY 10013

Tribeca's 155 Franklin is so full of action this year, what with Steven Soderbergh selling and Taylor Swift buying. Then there's sometimes-elf Orlando Bloom, who bought a three-bedroom loft there in June for $4.875 million. Those beamed ceilings really do it for celebrities, eh?

155 Franklin Street
New York, NY 10013

54. Steven Soderbergh - $5M

147 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011

This year, the director also wanted rid of his full-floor 3BR at in Chelsea, which hit the market in June asking $5 million. A bedroom is separated by a pretty nifty retractable, garage door-like divider. The unit was taken off the market at the end of November.

147 West 22nd Street

55. Paris Hilton - $5M

738 Broadway, New York, NY 10003

In November, the 33-year-old hotel heiress—who is also a DJ, perfume purveyor, and overall "rich girl" (hey, the shirt says it, not us)—paid $4.9 million for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse near Astor Place. The duplex with a roof deck is one of just four apartments in the Broadway McKenna building, which was converted to luxury apartments earlier this year. Let's hope it fits her seven dogs.

56. Lena Dunham - $4.89M

30 Henry Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

The tattooed Girls creator (and her boyfriend, Fun frontman Jack Antonoff) shelled out $4,887,600 for a four-bedroom apartment in a brand-new Brooklyn Heights building. Dunham bought at 30 Henry Street, a.k.a. the Brooklyn Daily Eagle's former offices, which were razed to make way for this five-unit condo building called The Heights. As for the $500,000 Brooklyn Heights one-bedroom she owned before? Jack's sister, fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, is subleasing it.

57. Phil Jackson - $4.85M

205 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019

It may be too soon to tell how basketball legend Phil Jackson is doing in his new position as New York Knicks President, but he's doing great in his new position as Guy Looking For a New York City Apartment, since in August he landed a three-bed, three-bath co-op in Midtown. Jackson paid $4.85 million, just under the original $4.995 million asking price.

58. Alan Cumming - $4.65M

404 East 9th Street, New York, NY 10009

In January, actor Alan Cumming bought an old East Village townhouse for $4.65 million. Before he nabbed it, the four-story, 20-foot-wide house had changed hands only once in the past 70 years. The house was listed in August of 2013 for $4.8 million and later upped its ask to $5.1 million. Cumming got a nice discount there.

59. Adam Levine/Behati Prinsloo - $4.55M

112 Greene Street, New York, NY 10012

In August, the rumor went as follows: a pair of newlyweds—Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo—were reportedly in contract to purchase a classic Soho loft. The listing showed lots of columns and a $4.55 million ask; the deed, dated a week later, shows that an LLC named ALBP Property closed on the 3BR/2BA for 4,500,000. A(dam)L(evine)B(ehati)P(rinsloo). Gotcha.

60. Dr. Zizmor - $4.3M

5021 Iselin Avenue, Bronx, NY 10471

The greatest celebrity real estate discovery of the year was the Fieldston home of subway-famous dermatologist Dr. Jonathan Zizmor. His 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean Revival mansion, which has been on the market for more than two years, was initially asking $4.3 million; it's since been re-listed with a new brokerage, and new pictures for $3.595 million. Still no takers?

61. Anne Hathaway - $4M

1 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

After floundering on and off the market since September of 2013, Les Misérables actress Anne Hathaway has finally unloaded her $4.25 million loft in Dumbo's famed Clocktower Building. Hathaway reportedly used the 2,592-square-foot two-bedroom as, quite possibly, the largest walk-in-closet in all of New York City.

1 Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

62. Neil Patrick Harris - $4M

2036 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10035

Last year, Neil Patrick Harris paid a record-setting $4 million for a four-story, 8,000-square-foot townhouse at 2036 Fifth Avenue in Harlem. This summer, he, his partner, and his two kids moved in—and are currently mid-renovation. (It's apparently not fun, or so says the hilarious NPH.)

63. John Mayer - $3.9M

225 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012

The celeb-studded condo building at 225 Lafayette Street, at the border of Soho and Nolita, lost at least one important resident. Singer-songwriter/semi-professional woo-er John Mayer sold his 2BR/2.5BA corner unit for $3,910,000. He bought back in 2005 for $2,173,690—not a bad profit.

225 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10012

64. Sir Patrick Stewart - $3.8M

118 West 79th Street, New York, NY 10024

Star Trek impresario Patrick Stewart steered his erstwhile (and woefully boring) Upper West Side pied-a-terre onto the market in June, asking $3,795,000. Stewart and his then-wife, TV producer Wendy Neuss, bought the co-op in 2003 for $1.8 million; Neuss had been living here full-time. It sold a few weeks ago for $3.82 million—over ask, probably due to bidding war between two Trekkies dying to own that landscaped wraparound terrace.

118 West 79th Street
New York, NY 10024

65. Jonah Hill - $3.8M

27 Howard Street, New York, NY 10013

Well, that was a bait-and-switch. Back in August, Very Serious Actor Jonah Hill listed his Very Serious Soho Loft, for which he paid $2.65 million only two years ago, for $3.795 million. Then he took it off the market. What a let-down.

27 Howard Street
New York, NY 10013

66. Aliya LeeKong - $3.75M

374 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238

The gorgeous 1880 Clinton Hill townhouse once owned by the great jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis will now be home to another great: Aliya LeeKong, culinary creative director and a chef at the Michelin-starred Junoon. LeeKong and her husband paid the full ask of $3.75 million.

67. Jim Parsons - $3.6M

36 Gramercy Park East, New York, NY 10003

Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper, err, Jim Parsons bought not one, but two apartments at the Gramercy Park condo conversion where he already owns two other places. The most recent buys are a penthouse for $2.8 million, and another unit for $815,000. Parsons, who has purchased all the homes along with his boyfriend Todd Spiewak, first bought in the building back in 2011, and that was a 12th-floor two-bedroom for $1.8 million. Later, the pair bought another place for $2.8 million on the same floor. That's a total of $8.2M in purchases within four years.

68. Deepak Chopra - $3.5M

230 West 56th Street, New York, NY 10019

Because New Age guru Deepak Chopra dropped a ton of money ($14.5M!) on an apartment at Greenwich Village's "wellness-centric" building called the Delos, naturally he had to get rid of his 69th-floor apartment at the Park Imperial. After two years on the market, he finally bagged $3.5 million for the two-bed, which he purchased back in 2003 for $1.75 million.

230 West 56th Street

69. Liam Gallagher - $3.5M

160 Central Park South, New York, NY 10019

The lead singer of 1990's Britpop band Oasis would like you to buy his Union Jack-draped Essex House apartment, thank you very much. Over the summer when the 17th-floor two-bedroom listed, it asked $4 million, but the ask has since dropped to $3.5M, and it went off the market just before Christmas.

70. Tamara Tunie - $3.5M

21 Hamilton Terrace, New York, NY 10031

Actress Tamara Tunie, best known as the medical examiner on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," is upholding the fine tradition of "Law & Order" stars owning and later selling New York City real estate by listing her Hamilton Heights townhouse. The five-story home million originally wanted $3.75 million; in November, the ask was chopped to $3.5 million.

Filmmaker Oliver Stone also wants out of West Village celebrity magnet 1 Morton Square, throwing his 2BR/2.5BA condo on the market in February for $2,999,999. It sold in May for $3.25M, over ask. He paid $1.9 million for the place in 2010. You go, Oliver.

25 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10003

Actor B.D. Wong, best known for his role as Dr. George Huang on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, took seven years to fully renovate the 2,950-square-foot Noho loft he purchased in 2005 for $1.25 million. This spring, he decided to part with the eclectically decorated 3BR/2BA pad, and it sold quickly for the full $3.25M ask.

"Grandmother of performance art" Marina Abramovic bought a two-bedroom condo in Soho's Urban Glass House last April for $2.65 million. Then, after a little more than a year, she sold it for $2.995 million (the full asking price). And, curtain.

75. Willem Dafoe - $2.9M

67 Perry Street, New York, NY 10014

Actor Willem Dafoe got rid of his rather nice West Village co-op to the tune of $2.875 million. Dafoe and his wife, Italian actress Giada Colagrande, purchased the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home for $1.6 million in 2005, but upgraded to a larger $3.99 million penthouse on nearby Jane Street in November. The Perry Street apartment was originally listed for $3.1 million.

76. Robert (and Drena) De Niro - $2.8M

32 Morton Street, New York, NY 10014

Real estate scion Robert De Niro lives in a $125,000-per-month 15 Central Park West apartment. It makes sense, then, that he bought this comparably dinky West Village penthouse, which cost $2.8 million, for his daughter and co-deed-signer Drena. The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom apartment has a wood-burning fireplace and 13-foot beamed ceilings.

77. Ken Burns - $2.75M

1 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11238

In May, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns (who is so well-known that he has an effect named after him) paid $2.75 million for a 3BR/2.5BA in Richard Meier's On Prospect Park. Burns lives in New Hampshire, so the glassy apartment will be occupied by his daughter and her fiance.

79. Helen Hunt - $2.6M

320 West 86th Street, New York, NY 10024

After owning a pretty blah Upper West Side co-op for eight years, actress Helen Hunt—of As Good As It Gets, What Women Want, and more—sold the three-bedroom pad for $2.6 million, making a measly $155,000 profit. It's been on and off the market since 2011, so maybe she was just glad to sell the thing.

80. Kristen Wiig - $2.59M

476 Broadway, New York, NY 10013

That was quick. A mere two weeks after comedian Kristen Wiig, of SNL and Bridesmaids fame, listed her two-bedroom Soho loft for $2.59 million, the apartment already went into contract. The listing says sold, though the transaction hasn't yet hit public record, so we don't know the final sale price.

Nate Ruess of pop band Fun, responsible for such radio anthems as We Are Young and Carry On, has picked up a new Noho pad. The frontman snagged a $2.55 million two-bedroom apartment right near the pop music experts that they call NYU students these days.

Australian supermodel Elle "The Body" Macpherson doffed her two-bedroom, two-bathroom pied-a-terre on the Upper East Side. She purchased the large one-bedroom in the heyday of her career, presumably for less than the $2.4 million it sold for in October.

25 Murray Street, New York, NY 10007

Former New York Giant and current talk show host Michael Strahan finallysold off his Tribeca loft for $2.3 million. He tried listing twice before it found a buyer. Strahan bought the two-bedroom, two-bathroom pied-a-terre in 2008 for $1.66 million with plans to renovate, but that never came to be. Raking in a $640,000 profit for doing nothing isn't half bad.

After 18 years, electronic music-maker and real estate mobul (get it?) finally sold his "tiny" Nolita crash pad, purchased in 1996 for a meager $215,750. Following a well-publicized rant about NYC's expense and exclusivity, he netted $1.95 million for the Mott Street one-bedroom with a sleeping loft, earning him nearly a $1.5 million profit.

85. Errol Morris - $1.9M

22 Pierrepont Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Documentary film director Errol Morris, known for such movies as The Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line, has bought a very charming three-bedroom co-op in an 1855 Brooklyn Heights townhouse from the estate of Nobel Prize-winner and U.S. Poet Laureate Joseph Brodsky. Morris and his wife, poet Julia Sheehan, paid $1.9 million for the duplex apartment, $100,000 over the asking price.

86. Zosia Mamet - $1.6M

896 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Playwright David Mamet's daughter, who is one of the main characters in Girls, is trying to flip the distinctive pink building in Bushwick she bought almost a year ago for $1.039 million. On the market since early October, Zosia Mamet is asking over $500,000 more than she paid for the place back in November 2013. Gentrification, anyone?

87. Ronan Farrow - $1.5M

225 West 60th Street, New York, NY 10023

In January, 26-year-old pillow-lipped Rhodes Scholar Ronan Farrow—better known as the offspring of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow—dished out $1.495 million for a two-bedroom, two-bath condo on the Upper West Side. He has his own show on MSNBC, so it was probably time he had his own apartment, too.

88. Jackson Pollock - $1.5M

46 Carmine Street, New York, NY 10014

The adorable little fifth-floor walkup in the West Village where Jackson Pollock once briefly resided in the 1940s hit the market in September asking $1.25 million, and it quickly has found a buyer. Its celebrity past helped Million Dollar Listing star broker Luis Ortiz sell it for more than the asking price—$1.46 million—in October to "a young Russian woman with a passion for painting."

90. Jimmy Fallon - $725,000

34 Gramercy Park East, New York, NY 10003

Funnyman Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy really love their co-op building at 34 Gramercy Park. In September, the couple picked up their fifth unit in the building, a studio on the top floor that cost $725,000 that they plan to use as an ofice. The purchase means that the Fallons now own 1/7th of the whole building.
