Famous Neighbors

About this feature

Celebrities are not like us, but when it comes to New York, they certainly live among us. Famous Neighbors plucks stars out of Hollywood and grounds them in their hood. Find out where they like to eat, shop and drink in the neighborhoods they love as much as you do. And don't blame us if a beloved neighborhood joint suddenly becomes a hotbed of star-spotting.
