Actor and comedian
3 stories, 2 bedrooms, 4,480 square feet
Chris Rock wants to be your landlord! The actor and comedian is looking for a tenant for his Brooklyn, NY townhome and you can move right in – if you have $7,950 a month to drop on the rental. Rock made a wise investment when he purchased the 4,480 square foot pad in the mid-90’s for $370,000. Now, similar-sized homes in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn are selling for more than a million dollars!
If you want to be Rock’s tenant and you got that kind of dough, you’ll be living in a limestone and brick townhouse with beautiful original details and modern amenities. The ground floor contains a two-car garage and a private apartment, ideal as guest quarters, with a large living room, a bedroom and a bathroom with a glass shower. The second floor is a massive open space with a half bathroom and a huge eat-in kitchen and dining area with brand new appliances. The top floor features a breathtaking master bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet, a master bathroom with double sinks and an oversized terrace.
It’s clear from the listing photos that Rock and his family aren’t living full-time in this home, but they’re not too far away. They have a massive spread in the fancy schmancy town of Alpine, New Jersey, which is just a short drive from New York City.
Pablo Cuevas of Douglas Elliman is the leasing agent on the property.

4,440 square-feet, 4 stories, 7 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons is selling her stunning and widely-published Park Slope townhouse. The stylish, well-decorated four-story 1880’s Brooklyn home once graced the cover of the now-defunct Domino magazine and a slew of other design-obsessed publications. According to Curbed, the sale of the townhouse is prompted by Lyons’ divorce from her artist husband Vincent Mazeau, with whom she bought the house with in 2004 for $1,300,000.
Now listed for $3,750,000, the spectacular North Slope townhouse, at 20’ wide with 4 stories plus a finished cellar, has been impeccably renovated to perfection. Every modern amenity has been added, while a complete restoration has preserved the integrity of the home’s original details. An open double parlor, beautiful (but not fussy) plaster cornices and medallions, aged pine floors, and 7 restored limestone mantels are just a few of the special details of this magnificent house. The casually chic home boasts 7 bedrooms, 3.5 luxuriously appointed baths, an eat-in cook’s kitchen with top of the line appliances, large private terrace off the master bedroom and a cellar that has been converted to a media room for entertaining. The ground-up renovation includes all new mechanicals, electric and plumbing, new rear façade and roof. The house has a landscaped, irrigated South facing rear garden anchored by a mature Dogwood tree. The property is currently set up as a 2-family residence with renovated garden rental apartment.
