Moby and John Legend now have something in common

Yeah, well, anyway they both have bought condos at 52E4....(Can't wait for the pool party invite from these guys!) As The Wall Street Journal Reports:

Singer John Legend has signed a contract for an apartment listed at $2.3 million, in New York’s East Village neighborhood.

“I didn’t want a cookie-cutter place,” says the 30-year-old singer, who decided to buy the one-bedroom, two-bath apartment before a tour that began in June. The floor-through Lower Manhattan apartment of more than 1,300 square feet, in a new glass-and-steel residential tower on the Bowery and East Fourth Street, has 14-foot-ceilings and views in every direction. The price Mr. Legend agreed to pay couldn’t be learned. A similarly sized unit in the building sold for $2.59 million last month and another for $2.5 million in June. The 15-story tower, completed this year, has a doorman, an outdoor pool and indoor parking.

that should be an interesting collaboration.

Maybe they'll do late-night fireside sing-a-longs at Phoebe's.
