Anne Hathaway reportedly never moved into this apartment, but instead used it as a closet.

This week’s celebrity real estate is New York-centric. Actress Anne Hathaway just listed her home in Brooklyn and Neil Patrick Harris picked up a new home in Harlem.

Actually, a clarification: Anne Hathaway is selling her Brooklyn closet.

Hatahway's apartment includes three en-suite bedrooms, an additional powder room, separate office and ironically “tons of closets.”

The New York Post reports the Oscar-winning actress never moved into the Main Street apartment, but instead used the ninth-floor place as a storage spot for clothes while she and her husband lived in another unit in the building.

As far as giant closets go, this one is pretty spectacular, with 2,592 square feet of living space and 11-foot beamed ceilings. Sixteen oversized windows capture views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, all the way to the Empire State Building.

The home is described as “perfect for entertaining” (although Hathaway apparently didn’t think so), with top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen and an open floor plan. The apartment includes three en-suite bedrooms, an additional powder room, separate office and ironically “tons of closets.”

Hathaway is reportedly on the hunt for another place to live in Brooklyn.

When Neil Patrick Harris started his real estate search, the actor wasn’t shy about it and went straight to Twitter, asking his more than 6.5 million followers if they knew of a brownstone in Harlem for sale.

Someone from Twitter — or perhaps a real estate agent — helped him out. The New York Post reports that Harris recently found his new brownstone, an 8,000-square-foot one backing up to Marcus Garvey Park in Central Harlem, for $3.6 million.

Five bedrooms and 5 baths are spread over the 5-story residence, which includes two terraces, a backyard, chef’s kitchen and plenty of space for Harris, his fiance and their twins, Harper and Gideon.

Harris got his start playing a teenage physician on “Doogie Howser, M.D.” He currently stars on the long-running sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” and is one of the highest paid actors on television. He will be hosting the upcoming Emmy Awards on Sept. 22.

Harris also owns a home in Studio City, Calif. and previously lived in another apartment in Harlem.
