There are almost as many celebrities living in New York City as there are living in Los Angeles, at least, it seems like it anyway. There are plenty of celebrities, so you’ll recognize many names. What celebrities can you name off the top of your head that live in New York City? Donald Trump and his family have residences in New York City and plenty of real estate, so he is one celebrity that you would recognize. Of course, he is currently running for President.
There is actually a website that has a map of the NYC celebrities and their names listed where they live on the map. It doesn’t give their address but just the location give or take on each street and without street names. While it’s a ‘zoomed out’ version, it’s something like I’ve never seen before, celebrities and where they live more easily accessible than ever thanks to the Internet.
Whether they are drinking VIP bottle service NYC or shopping on Manhattan’s 5th Avenue, chances are if you spend enough time in New York, you will run into a few. So what other celebrities live in NYC? First off, let’s talk about where they live in New York City. One thing I noticed was that many of them had properties not too many blocks away from Times Square, on all sides. Another thing that jumped out at me was that the source I saw said that most of them live in Upper West Manhattan. Then, another large group of them live in Upper East Manhattan. However, you aren’t going to believe where Neil Patrick Harris lives.
According to the map, he lives far away from most of the other celebrities, right near Harlem. I thought that was interesting, and it was interesting to see where others live as well. The ones living anywhere near Times Square aren’t too far away from Neil Patrick Harris, still at the top of the map compared to the others. From this point on, the map is literally flooded with celebrities, including Meryl Streep, Tom Brady, Jim Carrey, Hugh Jackman, Anderson Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford and many more.
When I say many more I mean tons more, as you would think after looking at the map that there are actually more celebrities in New York than in Los Angeles. Of course, remember since these are two hot spot cities for celebrities, and celebrities like to own multiple properties, many of them likely have a property in both cities. It is still an East Coast or West Coast preference.
Personally, I live on the east coast, but I used to want to live on the west coast. I planned on trying to buy a condo in Orange County or Long Beach. It was too expensive for me, so I moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on the east coast. I’m right on the oceanfront so I can’t complain. So I guess I’m an east coast person and in favor of New York City. I have been to LA before though, and there are plenty of celebrity addresses there, too. One more thing about New York and celebrities though is that this one site was showing how you could see a Google Maps picture of the celebrity address when you simply type in a name.
