Celebrity Real Estate: One Dope Queen Moves To Park Slope, Dunham Decamps From Brooklyn


PARK SLOPE – Writer, comedian, and one half of 2 Dope Queens, Phoebe Robinson moved to Park Slope over the summer.

The Pratt graduate purchased a 1,139-square-foot apartment in June with her boyfriend who works in the music industry. “I’ve always wanted to live in Park Slope; I’m just a Brooklyn girl,” she told Apartment Therapy.

Robinson’s new home is filled with natural light, velvet furnishings, plants, books, and artwork featuring musicians such as Sade and her favorite band, U2. A friend of Robinson’s from her Pratt days, Karen Asprea, helped the couple design their new abode. Go to Apartment Therapy to see photos.

WILLIAMSBURG – Girls creator Lena Dunham recently revealed in a New York Magazine interview that she has left Brooklyn for the West Village.

Dunham purchased a one-bedroom on Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights in 2012 for $500,000 and sold it for $850,000 in 2017. She then upgraded to a 3,200-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo on Henry Street, also in Brooklyn Heights, with boyfriend Jack Antonoff, who has taken over the apartment since the couple’s breakup last December. Dunham moved to a Williamsburg condo following the split and has now put that unit on the market for $3 million, Variety reports. Go to Brown Harris Stevens for the listing and photos.

Dunham purchased the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath condo earlier this year for $2.9 million, according to Curbed. Located in the former Gretsch Musical Instrument Factory on Broadway, the home features 13-foot-high ceilings, oversized windows, a fireplace, and a chef’s kitchen fitted out with high end appliances.

“My whole identity was, like, Brooklyn, and now I’m like, Thank you, Lord. I’m back amongst my tribe, which is like old people puttering around the health-food store. If I never see another fucking person in a cool sack dress with their baby again …” she said in the New York Magazine profile.
