Taylor Swift’s Tribeca neighbors have worked themselves into a tizzy speculating over the singers plans for the multiple homes she owns in the neighborhood.
Days after it was reported that Swift had bought a townhouse at 153 Franklin Street for $18 million, someone posted a sign on a nearby lamp post reading, “Taylor Swift Can Go F–k Herself,” the New York Post reported.
“People are concerned. Everyone’s wondering what she’ll do — if she will connect the buildings for the garage access [as the townhouse has its own garage with a private entrance] or make a massive compound,” said one resident who lives nearby. “There was speculation on what she needs the new townhouse and second unit for. Some think [the townhouse] is for parking!”
An insider in Swift’s camp to the Post that the singer had a hard time finding co-op and condo boards that would allow her to purchase a unit, given the baggage that comes with her celebrity status. Earlier this year Douglas Elliman accused Swift of stiffing her broker for the commission on the townhouse sale. [NYP] — Rich Bockmann
