Don’t just leave celebrity spotting for the streets of LA! More and more celebs are now calling New York City home, so spotting them in their favorite Starbucks in SoHo is becoming a regular occurrence. What if you lived where they lived? Here’s a list of our top NYC neighborhoods and which celebs live there:
- Upper West Side
This primarily residential neighborhood is home to celebs such as Tina Fey, Robert DeNiro, and Steve Martin. They can boast about being steps away from Lincoln Center or their beautiful view of Central Park, but so can you.
Since 9/11, this neighborhood has had a complete transformation through their dynamic population growth. It is the hub of offices and headquarters for many of the city’s major financial institutions. Both Chase Crawford and Tyra Banks call this neighborhood home, and with the conversion of office spaces to amazing apartments, you could find your dream apartment here too.
Recently ranked by Forbes Magazine as one of America’s most expensive zip codes, this is the neighborhood of choice for those who can afford it. Like a small town tucked inside a big city, the community vibe is a big part of the attraction. You could walk the streets and spot Blue Ivy, Jay-Z & Beyoncé taking a stroll, Jon Stewart reading the paper, or Billy Crystal enjoying a beautiful day.
- Greenwhich Village
Often referred to as “The Village,” you’ll always be able to find delicious brunch spots, live music and a nice place to sit in Washington Square Park in this mainly residential neighborhood. Home to Sean Parker (no, not Justin Timberlake, the real Sean Parker), Andy Samberg, and Anderson Cooper, this bohemian neighborhood can become your home too.
- Park Slope
Taking a trip over the bridge to Brooklyn, Park Slope features historic buildings, top-rated restaurants, bars, shops, and celebs such as Patrick Stewart, Nick Lachey, & Steve Buscemi. Take a trip to the Greenmarket on Saturday mornings to great a real sense of this neighborhood and see the mix of activities available for locals.
