Rosie O’Donnell is moving to Greenwich Village.
One of the newest celebrities in Greenwich Village is TV personality Rosie O'Donnell. This September, she purchased an $8 million penthouse in one of the historic buildings recently released by St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center.
Rosie's new home boasts a delightful view of the Empire State Building through the kitchen windows. The kitchen itself is pristine white and equipped to satisfy any master chef. With over 3,000 square feet of living space, Rosie's condominium has four bedrooms and three baths. The master bedroom suite has a large walk-in closet with windows. The open floor plan is furnished with a modern, clean touch. The huge private terrace provides both northern and southern views of New York City.
In 1849, St. Vincent's became a teaching hospital and the principal hospital to care for victims of calamities, from the sinking of the Titanic to those who suffered from the tragedy of 911. Villagers expressed major concerns about the demolition and restructuring of the historical hospital buildings until the Landmark Preservation Commission approved the revised plans in 2009.
Situated in lower Manhattan on the West side of New York City, Greenwich Village houses mostly upper middle class residents with a strong community identity. Unique local businesses, churches, universities, colleges, musical venues and historic buildings center around Washington Square Park. Rosie won't have far to go to put in an appearance at any one of several comedy clubs or theaters.
Although she may or may not neighbor with the numerous other celebrities in Greenwich Village, Rosie should certainly feel comfortable with the lifestyle. Greenwich Village has a reputation for its liberal, live-and-let-live attitudes and Bohemian ways. Rosie actively supports gay rights and is outspoken on her political beliefs. Her fame and talent as a comedian, talk show host, actor, author and artist allow her to support many charitable endeavors. Self-proclaimed as the "Queen of Nice," she donates generously to her For All Kids Foundation and many others.
