The fame game: check out celebrity homes for sale in New York City.


As the temperature soars and well-heeled New Yorkers flock to summer homes in the Hamptons, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket, back in NYC, a whole slew of celebrities have put their NYC homes on the market.

Among the current listings: quirky fashion designer Betsey Johnson, Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway, indie darling Parker Posey, 80's star Molly Ringwald, producer and rapper Sean Combs, the late neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, and actress Demi Moore.

From the West Village to the Upper East Side, take a tour of these envious homes of the stars, in our list of the top celebrity homes on the market.



The late neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, whose 1973 book "Awakenings" was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film in 1990 starring Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, died last summer at the age of 82 after a battle with cancer. He was a professor at several Manhattan medical schools during his career, including New York University and Columbia University.

His West Village apartment at 2 Horatio Street is now on the market for $2.25 million. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op is a comer unit overlooking Jackson Square Park. The unit features a wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, and refinished hardwood floors. The building is also home to Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen and Oscar-winning actress Sally Field.

Ogden Starr of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.


A 7,750 s/f five-bedroom penthouse that was once home to the Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway and her former boyfriend, Rafaello Follieri, before he was charged with money laundering and went to jail in 2008 is on the market.


The couple rented the apartment for $37,000 from South African real estate developers Muro and Avra Bank, who are now asking $33 million for the duplex at 641 5th Avenue, the Olympic Tower. Leonard Steinberg, Herve Senequier and Alexander Bank of Compass have the listing.



The designer, known for her trademark bleached-blonde locks and whimsical designs, is asking $2.25 million for her one-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the Upper East Side. The 850 s/f condo at 30 E. 85th Street features partial views of Central Park and a 300 s/f private terrace. The building has a full-time doorman and concierge, an on-site garage and is pet-friendly. Beth Benalloul and Salomon Benalloul of Corcoran have the listing.


Actress Parker Posey, who has starred in numerous indie favorites like Party Girl and House of Yes, is selling her Fifth Avenue co-op for $1.45 million. Posey bought the one-bedroom apartment at 30 5th Avenue in Greenwich Village in 2008.

The comer unit features views to the east and north, ample closet space, original floors, and custom-built bookshelves. The building has a doorman and is pet-friendly. Adding to her charm, Posey even appears in the listing photos with her dog, Gracie.

The six bedroom, 5 Vi bathroom penthouse home has three levels and a slew of amenities, including a private elevator, a terrace that nearly wraps entirely around the building, and stunning views of Central Park.
