    These buildings are arrestingly beautiful, especially near sunset.

    Natalie Portman Moving Out of Meier's Glass Tower

    by Irina Aleksander | July 31, 2008

    Natalie Portman's apartment.

    Natalie Portman would like to ditch her three-bedroom, three-bath apartment in Richard Meier's West Village glass tower at 165 Charles Street, the Post reported this morning.

    Ms. Portman, who bought the 2,500-square-foot place in 2005 for $5.7 million, has placed the apartment on the market for $6.55 million. The listing went to Andy Fink and Nancy Teague at the Corcoran Group.

    Mr. Meier's West Side buildings, which appear entirely see-through from the outside, have nonetheless drawn privacy-seeking celebrities like Heather Graham, who just bought a place in the Meier-designed 173 Perry Street. Martha Stewart's daughter Alexis and Mr. Meier's own daughter Ana both reside at 165 Charles.

    Lately, the demure Ms. Portman has been spending quite a bit of time in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, long-haired Venezuelan-American folk singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart. Perhaps the pair will be seeking out something a bit less shiny.

    How can spend all of that money on a great apartment and furnish it like that?

    It looks like the "tufted" display at a furniture showroom.

    LOL ^ It is just so wrong

    But it's probably just laziness -- the George Smith showroom is only a few blocks south on Hudson Street

    Looks like the fault lies with the "demure Ms. Portman." Doesn't seem to match the style of the boyfriend ...

    That is one scary dude. Doesn't that poor little Natalie have parents to give her advice?

    They used to take those guys to Bellevue and slap straightjackets on them. Now they date pretty actresses.
