Your Celebrity Neighbor

Your Celebrity Neighbor: Dr. Ruth

By Sharon Krum | February 5, 2014 - 3:53PM

WHO:  Sex education whiz Dr. Ruth, whose life was recently the subject of an off-Broadway show, has announced she’s writing a book called "The Scrooge Defect," claiming miserly people can’t be good in bed because they’re not generous. New York City is home to the most billionaires in the world (96). So does that mean it has the best lovers? Or the worst?

WHERE:  The 85-year-old sex therapist has lived in Washington Heights since 1956, and bought her three-bedroom rental-turned-co-op decades ago. There are currently several three-bedroom co-ops on the market in the area, ranging from $379,000 to $899,000. The median sales price in Washington Heights today is$449,000, and the median rent is $1,762.

Your Celebrity Neighbor is a weekly heads-up on the A-listers who call your neighborhood home and (in theory) shop the same Duane Reade as you.
