5 Style-Setting Celebrities Who Made the Move to Brooklyn

Some of our favorite New Yorkers are snatching up gorgeous homes in the booming borough.

There's no denying Brooklyn is one of the coolest spots in the country to shack up right now. So awesome in fact, that it's luring over famous Manhattanites aplenty for a taste of that brownstone townhouse life. From early adopter Michelle Williams, whose light-filled, patio-sporting Cobble Hill home is the stuff urbanites dream of, to official borough mascot Lena Dunham who, unlike her bumbling doppelganger on Girls,  just upgraded to a new $5 million pad in Brooklyn Heights, celebs are decamping across the East River for a taste of the hip life. See five of our favorite Brooklynites' home tours below.

Rose Byrne

The parents-to-be made a classic move out of Manhattan to its more family-friendly neighbor recently, scooping up a $2.5 million renovated townhouse. 

Michelle Williams

Boasting design-savvy interiors and a to-die-for outdoor dining area, the Boerum Hill home Williams purchased with Heath Ledger is a must see. 

Norah Jones

The songstress recently snatched up a one-of-a-kind historic property that also happens to have played a starring role in the movie, Eat Pray Love.

Lake Bell

Her backyard alone is the ultimate outer borough amenity. Check out Lonny cover girl Lake Bell's enviable, hippy-chic living space. 

Lena Dunham 

The actor-director-activist recently traded in a place just a few blocks away (and one tenth the price) for her new Brooklyn Heights home.
