Lena Dunham is done with Brooklyn. And, as she revealed this week in New York Magazine, she’s packed up and moved to Manhattan’s West Village where she says she’s found her new tribe, “old people puttering around the health food store.” The eight-time Emmy nominated 2013 Golden Globe winning co-creator of the Brooklyn-centric series “Girls” has her city-view condo in the borough’s hipster-packed Williamsburg neighborhood available at $3 million.
The 32-year old writer, actress and tireless social media over-sharer, who last month posted a startlingly graphic photo of herself in her hospital bed to her Instagram account just one day after she underwent an elective hysterectomy to alleviate severe pain related to endometriosis, isn’t seeking much of a profit on the apartment she bought earlier this year, shortly after she and musician/music producer Jack Antonoff amicably broke off their six-year relationship, for $2.9 million.
The combination living and dining space has a gas fireplace and nine huge windows that flood the space with light and the open kitchen is fitted with designer-grade stainless steel appliances and deluxe marble countertops on white laminate cabinets. Two guest bedrooms, both with extensive storage space and built-in workspaces, share a hall bathroom while the city-view master suite features a built-in bed that floats in the center of the small room plus twin dressing bays lined with open wardrobes and a marble floored bathroom painted a particularly girlish pink with a two-person soaking tub and separate, over-sized shower.

There are 13-foot open-beam ceilings, hardwood floors painted a sophisticated shade of pale grey and scads of crisply clean-lined custom built-ins throughout. Perched on a high floor of a converted early 20th-century factory building at the southern end of Williamsburg with open views over Brooklyn to the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan skyline, the architect-designed high-floor corner condo has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 1,987-square-feet.
Dunham, whose final project with long-time creative collaborator Jenni Konner, the not especially well received ensemble comedy series “Camping,” is currently airing on HBO, told New York Magazine she’s building a small house on a semi-rural Connecticut compound owned by her parents, artists Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons, and that since their breakup Antonoff has “taken over” their once shared Brooklyn Heights apartment — an approximately 3,200-square-foot space they scooped up in 2014 for just under $4.9 million — while she headed west to hide out in her idiosyncratically decorated 1920s bungalow and guesthouse secreted behind a towering hedge in an historic Hollywood neighborhood that she snatched up in 2015 for a mite more than $2.7 million.

Ben Brafman, an attorney for Weinstein, faulted the article for not mentioning that Battilana signed an affidavit stating that the alleged harassment was a "misunderstanding" and stemmed from "bad advice."
was gun-shy about going after Weinstein because he had friends in the upper echelons of government, and suggests that his office may have intimidated and worked to discredit Ambra Battilana, an Italian model who claimed Weinstein groped her in a closed-door meeting. The article is written by investigative reporter Kathy Dobie and claims that District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.
New York Magazine spokeswoman Lauren Starke responded to the comments by Brafman and Frost by stating that the publication stands by the piece.
The Manhattan District Attorney's Office is hitting back at an explosive New York Magazine report claiming that it failed to prosecute Harvey Weinstein in 2015 for alleged sexual harassment because of the indie mogul's political connections.
Despite the recordings, Vance's office ultimately decided not to prosecute Weinstein. The D.A.'s office reopened its investigation after dozens of women stepped forward last fall to accuse Weinstein of sexual abuse and harassment. Weinstein admitted to misconduct in a taped conversation with Battilana that was later published by the New Yorker.
"We have great admiration for Time's Up, and for the courageous women and men who have brought about a long-overdue reckoning with decades of intolerable sexual abuse," the statement reads. "Our commitment to justice in these cases is unwavering and we welcome the engagement that powerful advocates like Time's Up have brought to this work."” />
"Survivors of sexual violence — and all who stand with them — should know that the account appearing in this week's New York Magazine bears little resemblance to the facts," said Danny Frost, a spokesperson for the Manhattan D.A.'s Office, in a statement.
Time's Up, an activist group launched by Hollywood players such as Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, and Natalie Portman, has called on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to launch an independent investigation into the District Attorney's decision not to take on the 2015 case. Vance's office is under pressure following the story. Frost was careful to praise Time's Up while suggesting that such a move is unwarranted.
"Accordingly, any claim by Ambra that she failed to understand her own words is patently false." "NY Magazine also failed to mention the fact that her Affidavit was reviewed by her and her own attorneys, including her longtime Italian lawyer before she signed it under oath," Brafman's statement reads.
"Nothing in their comments alters the facts of the story as we reported them," she said in a statement.
