Lena Dunham’s moved on from her Brooklyn life — and it seems like she’s taking a loss to get closure.

The actress, who popularized the borough through her HBO hit series “Girls,” first listed her Williamsburg condo at 60 Broadway last July with Brown Harris Stevens asking $3 million. After taking it on and off the market, she relisted the property in May with Compass’ Erez Rose — and a $350,000 price chop. Now the unit’s in contract, just as the number of contracts signed in Brooklyn’s luxury market seems to be picking up.

Dunham bought the apartment in April of last year for $2.9 million dollars. The three-bedroom apartment has 13-foot beamed ceilings and a large walk-in closet. The building is on the site of Williamsburg’s former Gretsch musical instrument factory and amenities include a 24-hour doorman, and a library lounge area. But Dunham herself never actually lived in the condo and moved to sell it about three months later, after breaking up with former boyfriend Jack Antonoff. The couple previously lived together in Brooklyn Heights.

Though, for many fans Dunham is still closely associated with the borough she made popular, the starlet moved back to Manhattan last year. In an interview with New York Magazine around the time of her return last year, she expressed relief at leaving the borough: “I’m like, ‘Thank you, Lord.’ I’m back amongst my tribe.” [NYP] – Maya Blackstone
