On August 12, one solitary neighbor tweeted that the pair was moving to Brooklyn Heights. The tweeter admitted he was starting a rumor, but the Brooklyn Heights Blog picked up on it, for fun. A week later, longtime borough chronicler (and Brooklyn Flea co-founder) Brownstoner upgraded the news from blather to bona fide.
Though city records show the couple's name newly attached to a four-bedroom, four-bath co-op on Henry Street (asking price: $4.25 million), some BHB commenters are reserving judgment until the deed is filed. (It's gorgeous, but totally conventional. And it has a wraparound terrace just like their former downtown apartment.)
From our angle, though, the move definitely appears to be real: According to Streeteasy, the one-bedroom, two-bath apartment that the couple owns on West Houston Street was put on the market a day before the Henry Street apartment pad went into contract. The price tag for the one-bedroom, two-bath, still available for Cremaster-loving, swan-dress devotees? $1.7 million.
