Say ‘How Do’ To Your New DUMBO Neighbor: Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway seems to have a penchant for Brooklyn. The Oscar-nominated doe-eyed actress—who is starring next as Catwoman in this summer’s “The Dark Knight Rises”—has just moved from her BK Prospect Heights home to… DUMBO.

Both Curbed and Gothamist are reporting a goodie bag of details: She and fiancé Adam Shulman have moved into a rental unit in the Clocktower building at 1 Main Street, setting up house in a 1BR with home office going for $6,400 a month.

Hathaway and Shulman had been sniffing around various Brooklyn locales, including her temporary nest in Prospect Heights, before settling into the waterfront building next to the Manhattan Bridge. This followed Hathaway’s leaving her Manhattan digs at 641 Fifth Avenue, a $37,000-a-month 46th/47th-floor duplex, which she shared with ex-fiancé (and now imprisoned con man) Raffaello Follieri.

The New York Post notes that the couple’s sixth-floor $6,400-a-month DUMBO rental is a far financial cry from the building’s premiere penthouse space: the $19 million Watchtower triplex that has been sitting empty with no serious bidders (and was once asking $50,000 a month in rent). Meanwhile, the Post says, “Neighbors describe Hathaway as low-key.”

    Not really sure what is a more appropriate response:

    Who cares?


    Leave these people alone.

    This blog is rather fond of celebrities – alas. It does no good to counsel indifference. This is America.

  • Jazz

    @Jo – neither.

    How about:

    Welcome to Brooklyn DUMBO !

    No that doesn’t sound right either.

    Well, I would rather stars live here than film here, right?!!

    I just hope she’s nicer than that Doosh Paul whatshisface.

    Just kidding Pauly!!! :) ha!

    JoR- What’s your beef? This blog is for all kinds of news: history & real estate & events & photographs AND fun stuff… which includes celebrities. Maybe you should stop by Redbox and relax with a good movie. Might I suggest “The Devil Wears Prada”?

  • Gerry

    DUMBO is not really Brooklyn

  • x

    she could afford something a lot bigger and more expensive..

    watch potential stalkers and paparazzi camp outside the building.

    Why why why would anyone do that when you could buy a 3 bed for that kind of cash!

  • Arch Stanton

    Rental + “home office” = write off

  • David on Middagh

    Maybe the dough-eyed actress just wants to be near a “La Bagel Delight”.

    “[D]ough=eyed”? Cognac flies from my nostrils.

    It’s a logical neighborhood for a celebrity. You can maintain a good deal of anonymity there, more than Prospect Heights or a similar low-rise area. One figures she probably also has several other homes around the world that she goes to, including one in California.

    Why rent when you can buy?
    Freedom of info.
    All sales are public records, so if you want to avoid people from having access to your address you rent which is not public record.
    So thank you media folks for releasing her address.
    Now if some one wants their 15 minutes of fame they know where to go. Chances are it will be an illegal firearm that they use.

    Why buy when you can rent? If AH does not like living in DUMBO, she could break the lease and it would be a pittance compared to the aggravation of having to sell the place.

  • thenavigator8

    That’s right why rent when you can buy but i think the place in DUMBO will be temporary, Anne thinks of settling down in Ireland =)

  • Publius

    More BHB/TMZ starf**k. How uncool to cyberstalk celebs.

  • WillowSt.Neighbor

    You should look up the definition of “cyberstalking” before you accuse anyone on this blog of doing that.
