Report: David Schwimmer looking at new East Village homes

Actor David Schwimmer, who had a historic townhouse demolished to build a single-family home on Sixth Street, is now reportedly looking for new digs in the East Village.

The Post reports that Schwimmer was spotted checking out at a unit in the almost-finished condoplex at 64 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue. (Maybe he will be neighbors with Seth Rogen.)

This sighting comes following the announcement last week that he and his wife Zoe Buckman are separating.

Per his spokesperson: "He is always looking at interesting investment opportunities in New York." (Interesting!)

The Post's Jennifer Gould Keil recaps the Sixth Street Schwimmer timeline:

He destroyed the 19th-century home at 331 E. Sixth St. months after the city told him it was slated for landmark status ... The property had, in fact, been one of the oldest on the block. Schwimmer paid $4.1 million for the old house in 2010.

In 2011, the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission sent him two notices stating that it could get landmark status by 2012. But Schwimmer razed the home in the fall of 2011, earning him the wrath of neighbors and preservationists.

Noted not cool.

So many suopr-sized divorces! First David Schwimner and what's her name, then Brad and Angelina, and now Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. The only question for Ben and Jen is who gets custody of Matt Damon? Inquiring Minds Want To Know.
