The Post confirms what neighbourhood residents and bloggers have long speculated: that actor David Schwimmer is the new owner of the townhouse at 331 East 6th Street.Or former townhouse, we should say—Schwimmer had it completely demolished earlier this year after paying $4.1 million for it.

He did so after receiving Landmarks Preservation Commission notices that the house might be landmarked in 2012.

Not a way to make friends in the East Village! Too bad: since Schwimmer is planning a six-story mansion with roof terrace on the lot, he might be there for a while.
