Deron Williams buys $15.8 million Manhattan penthouse

According to the New York Post, Nets guard Deron Williams has purchased a 6,800-square foot apartment in TriBeCa for nearly $16 million:

Williams has purchased a 6,800-square-foot penthouse loft at the uber-posh 35 North Moore St. for $15.8 million. The six-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom residence in the Merchant’s House condo conversion, a building that dates back to 1905, also features a sprawling 3,000 square feet of outdoor space.

The unit includes a modern great room with 17-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and a skylight. Other highlights include sliding glass doors that open onto a Zen-like Japanese garden and a floating staircase. The “restaurant-grade” stainless-steel kitchen comes with a commercial range and dishwasher plus two industrial refrigerators, and there’s also an “oversized climate-controlled wine room.” And if Williams feels like driving back and forth from Barclays Center, the residence comes with two garage spaces.

Williams, who already lived in Manhattan, is one of four Nets players that live in the borough, including Jerry Stackhouse, Kris Humphries, and Joe Johnson. No Nets players live in Brooklyn.

  1. If I were in my 20s and rich I’d be in Manhattan too I guess, but Brooklyn is the place. Where else will you find a neighborhood like Fort Greene or Park Slope? Ironically the Barclay’s Center’s accompanying towers will destroy much of the charm of those neighborhoods

  2. Manhattan living for his Manhattan game. I’m pretty disappointed as a fan that has loved Deron Williams since his days at Illinois. He is truly playing like he just isn’t interested in being in a Brooklyn uniform. He should hire a private eye to locate his game.

  3. People should realize that as long as the Nets practice facility is located in Jersey and they practice at least as much as they have Barclay Center home games, then none of the Nets are going to get a place in Brooklyn.

    But the Nets should be able to find a Brooklyn based practice facility soon enough and then players will move out to Brooklyn. Neighborhoods right next the Barclay Center are great for anyone but in particular for well-to-do black folks. Check out the movie Brooklyn Boheme if you want to know a little more about the recent black cultural history of the surrounding neighborhoods.
