The Ken Burns Effect On Grand Army Plaza

If you suddenly feel like every time you’re at Grand Army Plaza, a soundtrack starts playing and a mellow narrator begins telling you about its history, that could be the influence of our newest neighbor, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns.

The Observer reports that the man behind films like The Civil War and The Central Park Five recently purchased a $2.75 million, 3-bedroom condo at 1 Grand Army Plaza, the Richard Meier-designed glass tower that opened in 2008.

It seems living in Brooklyn near Prospect Park is a big draw for more and more celebrities — actress Chloë Sevigny recently gave up her Manhattan digs for a place on Prospect Park West.
