Your Celebrity Neighbor: Keith Richards

WHO: Memo to Greenwich Village residents who enjoy quiet Sunday mornings: Hope you like your brunch with a side order of electric guitar, because Rolling Stone Keith Richards is coming to town. He might be 70, but he still plays “Satisfaction” at volume ten thousand.

WHERE: The guitarist and “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor just purchased a penthouse duplex co-op at 1 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village for $10.5 million (it was originally listed for $15 million in December 2012). That's on the high side even for this pricey neighbohood, where the median sales price is $2.08 million and the median rental price is $4,200.

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.
