Anderson Cooper's Fire Sale

Celebrity watchers and West Village boys, here's some five alarm news: heart throb Anderson Cooper has bought a Greenwich Village firehouse.

The high-paid CNN newsman and Vanderbilt heir shelled out $4.3 million to purchase the vintage firehouse on West 3rd Street, according to the New York Post.

Built in 1906, the four-story pad has original brass fire poles, murals documenting the fire patrol's history, spiral staircase, a backyard stable and a bust of mercury, the god of speed, over the large front door (HuffPo has pictures of the exterior).
