Lena Dunham is ditching Brooklyn for Manhattan’s West Village.

The writer, director and star of “Girls” is selling one of the two condos she owns in Brooklyn at 60 Broadway for $3 million, according to StreetEasy. The three-bedroom unit spans 1,987 square feet and is located in Williamsburg’s former Gretsch musical instrument factory.

Dunham never actually lived in the condo, buying it for $2.9 million in April before quickly moving to sell it in July after breaking up with her musician boyfriend Jack Antonoff earlier in the year.

Antonoff reportedly lives at 30 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, which Dunham bought in 2014 for $4.9 million. She sold half of her interest in the building to Antonoff in July for about $2.4 million.

Dunham grew up in Manhattan but came to be strongly identified with Brooklyn, due in part to the popularity of “Girls.” However, in a recent New York Magazine profile of her, she seemed relieved to be leaving the borough.

“My whole identity was, like, Brooklyn,” she said, “and now I’m like, Thank you, Lord. I’m back amongst my tribe, which is like old people puttering around the health-food store.” [StreetEasy] – Eddie Small
