Star Map NYC 2014 – A Guilty Guide to New York Celebrities
Let’s admit it. One of the guilty — though largely unspoken — pleasures of living in NYC is going about our daily business in close proximity to some of the world’s most famous personalities.
Whether it’s serial model-bedder Leonardo DiCaprio, Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, Cruise-less Katie Holmes, sports & fashion icons Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, entertainment power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, rocker Jon Bon Jovi, Sean “P Diddy” Combs, Anderson Cooper, the ever-irascible Alec Baldwin, Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford, Friends star David Schwimmer, Homeland‘s Claire Danes (a SoHo native who is now coupled up in the West Village), Justin Timberlake, SNL alumni Bill Murray, Steve Martin, and Andy Samberg, Sex & The City beau Chris Noth, Rock Royalty Liv Tyler, or even the legendary David Bowie (a favorite downtown NYC celebrity sighting), the denizens of New York have grown spoiled from constantly bumping into some of the most recognizable celebrities on Earth.
Too Manhattan for you? Perhaps Brooklyn’s Lena Dunham, Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean Luc Picard to the real fans, but, yes, also Professor X), Keri Russell, Steve Buscemi, Sarah Jessica Parker & Mathew Broderick (who actually have been buying and flipping townhouses in both Greenwich Village and Brooklyn Heights), or Anne Hathaway (our personal favorite Brooklyn celebrity sightings) are more your speed?
Speaking of Patrick Stewart, have you seen his incredibly endearing Twitter rant about Time Warner Cable’s absurdly awful customer service?
Sure, we New Yorkers are far too cool to start snapping photos or asking for autographs. But even the most hardcore of locals has felt that special rush of recognition and excitement that comes from stumbling upon a bona fide celebrity sighting.
