Celeb Apartments On Market: Brooke Shields & Albert Hammond Jr.


Brooke Shields’s childhood home at 345 East 73rd Street-now a co-op, but a rental when she was growing up there in the seventies-has gone on the market for $1.125 million. The child actress and model (and grown-up Volkswagen pitchwoman and Lipstick Jungle star) reminisced about the place in New York’s 40th-anniversary issue last month, saying she “did pogo-stick shows in front of the building.” The apartment is a pretty straightforward postwar two-bedroom, though it does have nice extras (built-ins, washer-dryer). The listing broker, Corcoran’s Don Everett, says with a chuckle that Shields is “welcome to stop by an open house” to see what the current owners have done to the place. Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., who’s reportedly moving to Brooklyn with his fiancée, model Agyness Deyn, has found a buyer for his East Village apartment. The two-bedroom co-op on East 3rd Street had been on the market since early August for $1.19 million; it’s now marked as “in contract” on listing broker Jill Sherwood’s Corcoran Website.
