The Starter Celebrities

ShareThis

We can’t all live next door to a Streep or a Pacino, but part of the pleasure of New York apartment life is that familiar faces from stage and screen have a way of just appearing down the hall, even in a building that’s not stocked with stars. Take, for example, 175 West 93rd Street, a good-looking but hardly celebrity-studded twenties building at Amsterdam Avenue. A recent listing there, for apartment 9G, had been home to not one but two familiar faces: Ugly Betty star Becki Newton and her husband, Broadway and television actor Chris Diamantopoulos, who’s lately worked on 24 and The Starter Wife. The couple’s just found a buyer after it had been on the market for about eight weeks, at an asking price of $599,000. Earlier this month, People reported that the couple was expecting their first baby, which may explain why they’ve decided to sell (it’s a one-bedroom). That and the fact that Newton’s new gig, the anthology dramedy Love Bites, is based in California. Are they heading West for good? Their brokers (the Colgate, Roberts & Uffelman Team at Brown Harris Stevens) won’t comment.
