David Groh lived at 77 Seventh Avenue before he starred on "Rhoda."
Ethel (I pick my nose) Kennedy lived close by until her house got sold. I see Katie Couric with her mother at the Safeway -her childhood home is in my neighborhood. Another one who used to be here frequently was Sandra Bullock, especially when her mother was sick.
In Arlington, Va
My old block in Manhattan had Malcolm Forbes, David Byrne, Meryl Streep, Isaac Mizrahi and (reportedly) Marisa Tomei. I saw them all except Marisa.
Gomer lives a few homes down. He always waves at me as he walks the beach. Very nice man.
Where does Sean Lennon live?
"Where does Sean Lennon live?"\
In the Dakota, Yoko owns three apartments there, Sean lives in one of them.
I have run into James Gandolfini a few times in south Jersey. Once at Costco, once at a park and once at a Quic Chek. I think his sister lives near me, at least that is the rumor.
Alas, no one current. \
But Betty Grable was baptized in the Episcopalian church two streets over, Tennessee Williams worked where my parents did at the JC Penney Warehouse, and James Earl Ray used to stay down the block on our street where I grew up.
Where does Kate Winslet live? I know she must be near me, I feel her...%0D\
Ethan Hawke lived around the corner, not sure if he is still there. But saw him a while back coming out of a townhouse over on 21st and 9th.%0D\
I think half of New York Hollywood lives either in my neighborhood or in the West Village just south.
Faye Dunaway lives on my street, two blocks over. The Fairfax high kids have graffitti''d her house a couple of times though I''m sure they don''t know who she is.
Former CA governor/homophobe Pete Wilson lives a few houses away. Michelle Phillips also lives in the hood.
[quote]Ethan Hawke lived around the corner, not sure if he is still there. But saw him a while back coming out of a townhouse over on 21st and 9th.\
He used to live on 19th between Eighth and Ninth, pre-Uma.
Apparently Hell''s Kitchen is overrun with whores and porn stars. Do they count?
R11, Kate lives in the West Village. I FINALLY saw her a few weeks ago and almost had an orgasm right then and there, \
I have at least a half dozen celebs that live in my building. Most of New York Hollywood lives in the West Village/Chelsea area.
She''s not going to fuck you, r16. Ever.
I grew up in the same town (the late) Johnny Cash used to live in with his family over in TN. They were all very nice. They even made their son get a regular part time job back when he was a teenager and everything. %0D
(The late) Conway Twitty lived there also and he had a really odd relationship with his kids. Really odd. Like Southern Gothic odd. %0D
Trisha Yearwood lived there for a while as well and she pinged like a mother fucker to me but she is kinda white trashy in an endearing way. She is the kind of person who would buy someone a really elegant gift for the holidays or what have you but then wrap it herself in the most gaudy way possible and yet think it "classy." Weird. %0D
Dolly Parton owned a home there, but I do not know if she used it a whole lot or what. She is cool. She would just do her thing around town sans wig and stuff. I loved her for that and everyone respected her privacy. %0D
TN is unique in that its musical history is so long and varied that folks in the music industry can live there without being bothered.
Jodi Whatley, that tiny lady from Poltergiest, the dad from Fresh Prince, the British Captain of the Enterprise, Lily Tomlin, that fashion model that was in a Knight''s Tale, the dad from My So Called Life, Noah Wylie, the daughter on Gilmore Girls. I live in Los Feliz, CA and it''s crawling with celebrities. There are others I''ve seen but I can''t remember their names (obviously) or what they''ve been in.
I would say two of the people R19 are celebrities, the rest are working actors.%0D\
BTW, r19, The dad on My So Called Life is bicurious and loves to smoke pot. You should go for it.
I''m guessing you haven''t seen the tiny lady from Poltergeist around lately, R19.
Lou Diamond Philips lives a couple of streets away from me.
Bullwinkle is my super.
[quote]Faye Dunaway lives on my street, two blocks over. The Fairfax high kids have graffitti''d her house a couple of times though I''m sure they don''t know who she is.%0D\
Does she still live in the walled two-house "compound" on Willoughby?
Can you imagine being Faye Dunaway''s neighbor? God, that must be bizarre.
Holly Woodlawn lived in my building in NY. Now in LA, I have Soulja Boy. . .total trash.

Sarah Polley lives down the street from me (Toronto)...she pets my dog all the time
[quote](The late) Conway Twitty lived there also and he had a really odd relationship with his kids. Really odd. Like Southern Gothic odd. %0D\
cannot resist "Southern Gothic odd"
Robert Pattinson used to live on my street, before he got famous. Anneka Rice lives around the corner, which will mean very little to anyone other than Brits of a certain age.
Seann William Scott across the street. Jealous, bitches?
No it was years ago I saw her in the Gelsons (used to be Mayfair) down the street. I''ve been in the neighborhood a while.
Steven McQueen lives 2 apartments down the hall from me.
r35, what''s it like n heaven?

I just watched "The Forgotten". I wouldn''t brag about living close to Julianne Moore, seriously.
Dom Deluise used to live down the road from me. \
John Irving lives up the mountain a piece.
James Lipton, In the Actor''s Studio, lives in a townhouse a block up the street from me on the upper eastside of Manhattan.%0D\
The town house must be worth 8-10 million. Where did he ever get money like that?%0D\
(PS He is very short and his hair looks boot black.)
Kathie Lee'' beach house is the next neighborhood over from mine.
My sister who lives in Carfif went to John Barrowman''s garage sale about a month ago. She actually doesn''t live that far from him. I am so jealous.

R33, what street?
Does Mary-Louise Parker still live in Greenwich Village?
SJP lives across the street from me.%0D\
[R33], what street?%0D\
Not the OP, but I heard it''s Charles Street? Anyone knows?
Oops, I meant SJP lives on Charles Street. That''s what I heard.
This list is proof that DL has a huge percentage of sheltered, wealthy,Ivy League grads who think they grew up in middle class neighborhoods backgrounds.
Ray Dragon AND Colton Ford live on my street.....
Mary-Louise is still near Washington Square.%0D\
SJP is on Charles, as were Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe until they divorced.

I''m not exactly sure but I heard Jodie Foster''s appartement (she''s in NY every now and then) is also on or at least near Charles Street.%0D\
Somewhere between W4th St. and Bleecker or Hudson Street.
My aunt used to live in the same building as Peter Masterson and Carlin Glynn (Mary Stuart Masterson''s parents) on the Upper East Side.
I''m in Astoria. Nobody famous lives there after they get famous. \
However, a good friend of mine lives in the same building with Frances MacDormand, whom she says is absolutely lovely, and when she won the Oscar took it around to show the doormen and elevator guys. (When Murray Abraham won HIS Oscar, I believe he lived in Queens, and took it on the subway to show people).
I grew up on the same street as Steve Carell.
he worked at the supermarket when i knew him
No wonder we often see NY paparazzi pics of the same celebs, the ones who live in Greenwich Village and West Village. Easy target for them.
I used to see Olympia Dukakis at my Weight Watchers meeting. East 12th St.
When Cate Blanchett lived in Brighton I could see straight into her bathroom from my attic window. My house was also round the corner from UK soap actress Patsy Palmer and next door to the late, great, Tom Bell (who was the nicest neighbour anyone could have).
Whenever I''m in NYC I regularly see veteran actress Marian Seldes. She probably lives in the area I''m staying.
Jodie''s on Hudson between Bleecker & W. 12th.
I used to see a lot of my dorm mates on NBC, until they died.
R43, Peter Saarsgard only has one kid, a daughter who''s a toddler. he and his family live in Brooklyn.
OP, don''t Rachel Weisz and Darin Aronofsy live near Julianne?
Jodie bought her condo from Ricki Lake who combined hers and the apartment next store to have a larger penthouse. She bought from Kevin Spacey. Glenn Close once lived in the building.
A friend lived directly below Hall and Oates at 299 West 12th. When the gay rumors started Hall moved to Christopher Street.
Tyler Hanes, Van Hansis''s partner lives in Astoria. Ethel Merman and Tony Bennett grew up there.
Mario Cuomo and our future governor were once just kids from Queens.
Chris Rock has an apartment in my UWS building in NY. Not sure what the deal is, as I think he has a house in Alpine, NJ. Maybe he''s separated?
Sherri Shepard just bought two doors down from me. Haven''t seen her yet.
My sister lives in NYC (UES)I go there frequently to visit and always roam around Lower Manhattan, and the West Village and honestly, I have never seen anyone and I''ve been going there for years.
What do NPH and David Burtka own in Harlem? A townhouse, a condo....?
"Sherri Shepard just bought two doors down from me. Haven''t seen her yet."\
She''s not exactly hard to miss, you''re time will come.
I''ve been to Julianne Moore''s home. Not socially, for work.\
Where does Edie Falco live?
[quote]Dolly Parton owned a home there, but I do not know if she used it a whole lot or what. She is cool. She would just do her thing around town sans wig and stuff.\
Details. How does her hair look? Every rumor is different, so I''d love to hear the truth for once.
Several well known authors and artists live nearby, but none are really celebs. Brian Doyle-Murray lives within walking distance of my house. Or lived; he may have moved. I am not sure because I rarely saw him out and about except when his brother Bill was in town and hitting the bars. (Bill tells a hysterical story about how some drunk college kid harassed Doyle-Murray thinking he was Bill, completely oblivious to the fact that the real Bill Murray was standing right there.)
Adam Sandler bought a condo nearby a few years back.%0D
NPH and Burtka have left Harlem for Tribeca.
R54, thanks. Now if you''re English skills were only a match for your grasp of the American Anglican lexicon....
dawsonlawson at R10
[quote]Whenever I''m in NYC I regularly see veteran actress Marian Seldes. She probably lives in the area I''m staying.%0D\

[quote]Seann William Scott across the street. Jealous, bitches?%0D\
I''ll bet he didn''t invite you to his birthday party on Sunday (Oct.3)%0D\
[quote]Sherri Shepard just bought two doors down from me. Haven''t seen her yet.%0D\
She''s been busy checking the neighborhood to see if the edge is nearby. She doesn''t want to fall off. %0D\
[quote]Ben and Anderson live in my building %0D\
But not for long....
Obama lives down the street from me.
Angie Dickinson and Burt Bacharach lived a few doors down from my aunt/uncle in Aspen, in the early 70s. They lived either right next to a golf course, or on the edge of some kind of hillside that BB used to hit golf balls from. One day while out being walked my aunt''s dog peed on BB''s golf bag; he threatened to sue. Not a nice man.
When NPH and David move to TriBeCa they''ll be neighbors of Jesse L. Martin and Jake Silbermann. BTW Jesse and Jake don''t live together.
How can Jake Silbermann afford to live in Tribeca?
I live just around the corner from Bob Geldhof.
[quote]Now if you''re English skills were\
Not the usual "Oh, dear" troll
Jake saved his Bar Mitzvah money.
Seldes is seen between Central Park South and the West 70s. She likes to walk.
NPH and Burtka used to live in Studio City by the Radford studios. They would have Halloween parties for the neighborhood children. I borrowed a friends kids once in order to go.
I don''t think he was implying dead, R83. More like undead.
Parents of an astronaut live around the corner. He visits often.
r11, Kate lives a few blocks from where Ethan once lived, not in the West Village.
Former TV Reporter, Jay DeDapper who was gay bashed on the street, lives on the same West Village block where Monica Lewinsky used to reside.
[quote]Um, Marian Seldes is not dead.%0D\
Um, it was a joke R83%0D\
Vampires sleep in coffins with a layer of dirt from it''s original grave.
R99,Jay DeDapper is no longer a reporter? It was WNBC, right? I use to watch him when I had DirecTV and I subscribed to the NY/LA network feeds.
[quote]Where does Kate Winslet live? I know she must be near me, I feel her... Ethan Hawke lived around the corner, not sure if he is still there. But saw him a while back coming out of a townhouse over on 21st and 9th.
She lives in Chelsea, closer to the river.
I work in the West Village. I can't say where because it is very famous, and I really don't want to be busted. LOL. But the celebrity customers I get are amazing.
Julianne Moore, Holly Hunter, SJP, Emma Roberts, Jake G, Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman, Katie Holmes, Liv Tyler, Adam Sandler, Eric Stolz, Margret Colin, one day Warren and Jonathan from Buffy came in together and I almost cursed the for killing Tara.
The list goes on and on. No one has ever been out right mean. Julianne and Liv say hi whenever they see me anywhere in the city. oh Chris Gorham was probably the hottest. Michael Ausiello was the wierdest
A retired pro basketball player used to live half a block away. I never knew him. He parked his DeLorean auto out front.
I own a house in a small nearby town where Jake LaMotta spends half of the year. He hangs out every day in bars and restaurants and all the locals know him.

James Gandolfini and Drew Barrymore together, r106?!
Maxwell Caulfield and Juliet Mills lived in my street in Sherman Oaks for a few years. They have now moved on. Always waved or had a chat.
R104 that's sweet about Julianne and Liv - I'm a service provider myself (barista) and I always appreciate it when regular customers acknowledge my existence as an actual human outside of the coffee shop. It's amazing the people that do not.
Any scoop on Jake G? Does he come in with cute guys?
Lily Tomlin lives in Sherman Oaks on my street. South of the boulevard. I don't think she lives in Los Feliz. Not unless she packed quietly and moved.
Thanks for posting on Dinklage. I could have sworn i saw him walking a dog on Bank a year or 2 ago. Figured i got it wrong....
I've seen SJP on Charles too but didn't she recently move?
Susan Sarandon is by 6th/10th
R103 what neighborhood?

Sean Connery owns a huge vacation beachfront house nearby. I didn't know he owned it until recently. After it was built, I stopped on the coastal highway to take pictures because it was such a beautiful home.
I'm fortunate to live on a world class street, celebrity / history -wise. Grew up here. Most famous now for being O.J.'s St. - till he killed his wife.

Betty White lives a blk. away, in a cute house with yellow shutters. Mark Harmon/Pam Dawber live 2 or 3 doors down from Betty. Maria Shriver just moved in, down the St. from Betty. Rikki Lake lives on same St. too . But back on my St., Linda Ronstadt lived here in the 80's, Shirley Temple in the 30's, as did Zazu Pitts. Mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer lives a blk. away, in a cool, modern house, Phyllis Diller lived on my St. - but below Sunset, for 50 years.
