Looking for where James Bond star Daniel Craig lives in the East Village

The Daily Mail goes looking for some info on Daniel Craig's East Village home and other stuff ... the paper speaks with a "bored-looking concierge" who denies that the James Bond star lives in the "low-key building" in question.

But! Some locals blab. Per the article:

Step into the grimy street outside and the locals are positively falling over themselves to talk about their famous neighbour.

'Of course that’s his place — we see him going in and out all the time,' drawls the lady in the next-door tattoo parlour.

'I did a double-take the first time I saw him in the supermarket,' adds star-struck Debra Johansen. 'He had a flat cap on and he had his head down. He doesn’t look at anyone.'

Not that he and his wife Rachel Weisz will be spending too much time here.

Work is understood to be ongoing on a house in Regent’s Park, where they intend to set up a more permanent home.

...

Back in the UK, the couple have also been spotted house-hunting in Dorset, where they have reportedly briefed estate agents to find them a property with 'a minimum of six acres to ensure complete privacy'.

If celebrity real estate is your thing ... Any guesses where he lives? I thought it was here, though there's isn't a tattoo parlor next door. (And he's not here. Yet.)

he lives on St Marks between 2nd and 3rd Ave. Apparently he likes that there is no parking on that street so the press cant get at him

Ah, right... thanks, anon. I didn't realize that building had a concierge...and I wouldn't call that one "low-key"!

Yeah, I had seen him go into the building above St. Mark's Market the weekend after he got married, carrying flowers. She is walking her cute little boy to school or daycare in the morning all the time.

Ah, another mystery solved for me via evgrieve. I was walking there 2 days ago and saw 2 serious black SUV type Escalades. There were also 2 body guards, one who looked like he had a concealed carry permit.

My brain said, "WTF? This is out of place". Now I understand who/what was likely involved.

why do dummies like this come here to live if he feels like he can't "look at anyone"?

Yeah, none of this makes sense. Are either of these people in Broadway shows or TV series that shoot in NY? If you are a wealthy adult and could live anywhere yet you choose to plop down smack in the middle of NYU hell, that indicates you might be a bit of an airhead. Or maybe he just is a big fan of ramen noodles and fro-yo.

I think it makes sense for him to be here. It's not the usual place people will look for celebs. And I think it's kind of cool he picked our 'hood. Still waiting to see that hot ass.

Also, didn't Rachel Weisz used to own a place on 11th b/t 2nd & 3rd? Maybe they just wanted to stay in the neighbourhood.
