It’s a well-known law of downtown New York City real estate that whenever one comedian or model or TV director moves out of his apartment, another one moves in nearby immediately. So it shouldn’t be that surprising that a deed filed in city records Thursday showed that Saturday Night Live star Kristen Wiig bought a Soho co-op at Broadway and Broome Street from Mad Men and Sopranos director Alan Taylor.
Its listing is poetic but odd: “Let the SUN Shine in. From SUN rise to SUN set,” it says. “Let the SUN start your day from this high floor corner Loft with South and East exposures. SUN pours thru 7 oversized windows.” Marketing photographs show a bevy of vegetables and plants.
Listing broker Mary Rolland did not return a message—nor did Ms. Wiig’s publicist, and Mr. Taylor did not answer a phone call. It’s not clear if the two know each other from his upcoming HBO show Bored To Death, where she may appear.
