If there is one thing that New York City offers in spades, it’s glitz and glamour. Among those in showbiz, we regularly acknowledge that NYC is the country’s top hotspot for fashion, world-class modeling, and most types of print media. It’s also home to many movie sets and a seemingly endless number of stories. Is it any surprise that the city is also home to celebrities? Therefore, we will look at some of the biggest names that call New York City real estate “home.” Some might shock, surprise, or give you extra New York City pride. Let’s list the top 15 Celebrities Who Live In NYC.
Alec Baldwin remains a steadfast lover of New York for decades, a prominent A-list actor, and a member of the Baldwin clan. For instance, according to local records, Balwin owns not one but three different apartments in the same building in Greenwich Village.
We do not know much about this writer, comedian, and producer while he’s here.
Indeed, it seems like he likes to keep a low profile.
Robert DeNiro’s time in New York City makes sense, considering how often he’s cast as a gangster. He’s a life-long New Yorker who has lived here most of his life. As a New Yorker, he’s known for buying up ultra-luxury areas.
Currently, he’s on record for having a co-op at Central Park West priced at over $20 million and a luxury $2 million loft.
Rumor also has it that he happens to be a part of one of the most expensive co-ops in the city, but they tend to be hush-hush about it.
It’s strange seeing a country girl like Taylor Swift on this list. Though the country crooner-turned-pop star might not seem like a good match, she’s taken to the city pretty well.
After rising to superstardom, she decided to settle down (or have a pied a Terre, we aren’t sure) at 153 Franklin Street. It’s a lovely townhome.
The man with the golden voice is a massive hit on the silver screen, and like many other actors on this list, that means that he had to have a place in the city. As a New Yorker, he’s taken a significant shine to his 15 Central Park West home.
It would have to be good to him, though. He paid a whopping $13 million for it! Oddly enough, this venue also hosted another name or two from this list on here—most notable, Alec Baldwin.
Gay icon and famously talented Doogie Howser, Neil Patrick Harris, learned to love the city early on. Though he travels to California regularly, he still plunked down $3,500,000 for a beautiful 8,000-square-foot townhouse in Harlem.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is famous and popular. Oliver seems to be one of the most popular British comedians to make it in the United States. And, it looks like it was filmed in New York City.
Oliver himself has taken a shine to the city. He bought a massive penthouse condo for $9,500,000 in 2015 and hasn’t left.
Known for her complete and utter lack of facial expressions and for being the female dullard from Twilight, Kristin Stewart gained a massive amount of money from her time in the spotlight.
A posh lady, she bought up a Noho loft at 1 Bond Street for herself.
Potterheads, rejoice! Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the Harry Potter franchise, has been a New Yorker since he starred in his Broadway play Equus. Due to his time on Broadway, he bought up a small luxury townhouse in the West Village.
It’s important to realize that Radcliffe doesn’t just spend his time in New York, he also divides his time in London, where he’s originally from.
Another international transplant, Noah became famous as a knee-slappingly funny comedian on The Daily Show. Trevor Noah originally came from South Africa but moved to the United States after he gained stardom.
Noah currently lives pretty darn close to the place where he films. So if you see him walking out of Stella Tower, say hi!
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are the power couple that somehow manages to stay out of the public eye. Though they are remarkably wealthy and could have any place in America, they chose New York City not once but twice.
Initially, they had a SoHo penthouse for $6 million. Recently, they upgraded to a beautiful penthouse in TriBeCa for a jaw-dropping $20 million.
After playing Katniss in The Hunger Games, it’s no surprise that Jennifer Lawrence got a pretty hefty paycheck. Like many actresses and socialites, she spent her money on a luxury townhouse-style condo on Jane street for $21 million.
Believe it or not, she’s pretty new to the Big Apple, and she’s only lived here since 2020.
Are you a fan of Law & Order? You might recognize Chris Noth as the chiseled NYPD officer who made hearts melt. As it turns out, some of that action might not be an act, and he’s a native New Yorker.
Noth has resided in New York for the better part of two decades. He’s lived on East 9th Street in Greenwich Village since the mid-90s, making him one of the longest residents of a single place on this list.
Al Pacino will always remain the Godfather, thanks to his role in The Godfather movies.
Unsurprisingly, Pacino grew up in the tri-state, giving him a reasonably authentic New York accent.
According to our research, Al Pacino still lives right near Central Park.
Petite and popular Peter Dinklage gained his notoriety from being a favorite cast member of Game of Thrones, but he’s been around for ages as a part of the NYC acting scene. Before joining the Lannister family, Dinklage was an inhabitant of Williamsburg.
Then, he traded for a lovely apartment in upstate New York today. However, he still is seen around the city regularly.
Finally, Potterheads might notice this name sounding familiar.
Fiennes was the actor who played Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise. Since then, he’s been a trendy and prolific indie actor.
Unsurprisingly, he got an apartment in the glitzy and glamorous Meatpacking District.
