WILLIAMSBURG — Her "Girls" character may struggle to pay the bills in Greenpoint, but in real life Lena Dunham is looking to live it up in North Brooklyn — in a penthouse by the Williamsburg Bridge.

The sitcom writer, director and star looked at a $4.45 million apartment in South Williamsburg's luxurious Gretsch Building this weekend, the Daily News reported. The "full-floor penthouse" includes a "1900-square-foot wrap-around terrace," three bedrooms and even "electric drapery controls," realty company Douglas Elliman notes on its website about the space.

"This is one of the best apartments in the entire borough," a source who saw Dunham told the Daily News. "It's a lot of apartment for a single girl. She could have some serious parties."

Dunham currently lives in a one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights, the Daily News noted.
