Legendary NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon is selling his Upper West Side condo at 15 Central Park West for a cool $30 million. Mr. Gordon was one of the initial buyers at the building back in 2007, when he paid $9.67 million for the 3BR/3.5BA 3,454 square foot unit. Prior to that, he had been renting [...]
I’m not sure how this may be affected by the weather, but Law & Order: SVU is supposed to be filming in the neighborhood today. OLV reports production is taking place in Central Park near Columbus Circle.
Haven’t posted any Upper West Side celebrity real estate news in a while, so here’s a quick update on the neighborhood digs of Téa Leoni, Dr. Drew, and Richard Kind:
One of the things I love about New York is that you never know what random thing you’re going to see at any given moment… If you were at the 66th Street/Lincoln Center subway station yesterday morning, you would have happened upon Grammy Award winner Michael Buble singing a capella. Daily News has a couple [...]
Summer is getting closer… Earlier this week the lineup for SummerStage 2013 was released. This morning, Good Morning America followed suit with the announcement of the 2013 GMA Summer Concert Series schedule. 15 free concerts will take place in Central Park on Friday mornings from late-May to the end of August. This year’s concert series [...]
Posted back in February that Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez was reportedly eyeing a $19,000/month 2BR apartment at 15 Central Park West. Looks like he ended up back on Riverside Boulevard instead.
If you’re looking for some last-minute plans tonight (Monday, 4/8), legendary TV host Dick Cavett will be the UWS Barnes & Noble to interview actor/comedienne/author Richard Belzer about his new book, Hit List. Mr. Belzer has lived on the Upper West Side since the 1970s.
In yet another sign that spring is here, Central Park held their annual “First Mow” earlier this week. The event marks the first time Central Park’s lawns and ball fields have been mowed since the fall and this year’s celebrity gardener was former NY Giant and current LIVE With Kelly & Michael host, Michael Strahan. [...]
It’s a double-feature of sorts on the UWS today, as two television shows are filming in the area: FX’s cold-war spy drama The Americans (Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich) is in the northern part of the neighborhood, while CBS’s Person Of Interest (Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson) returns for its second straight day [...]

Wrote last March that Matt Damon can occasionally be spotted working out at the Upper West Side Crunch (162 W. 83rd, between Amsterdam & Columbus). Almost exactly one year later, that still appears to be the case. MUW reader Beth snapped a photo of the actor between sets over the weekend. I can’t say he [...]
True Story, based on the book by journalist Michael Finkel, is filming on the Upper West Side today. The film stars Oscar-nominees James Franco and Jonah Hill, as well as Felicity Jones. For additional star power, Brad Pitt is producing the movie.
