Lena Dunham, the creator of the Brooklyn-based TV series “Girls,” announced that she left Brooklyn for the West Village. One of the reasons was to avoid Brownstone Brooklyn’s focus on mothers with strollers, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.  

“I just wanna live around old people who are not reminding me every day of my infertility and loneliness,” she told New York Magazine in an interview. In addition to infertility, she suffers from fibromyalgia, a disease characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue.

In the New York interview, she also speculated on the reasons between her rifts with former professional associates, friends and romantic partners. She has said that “she won’t go to parties if there are more than five other people in attendance,” Page Six reported.

    So I guess she’s no longer in her expensive apartment in the Heights. Well, she was fodder for local news blogs while she was here. In recent years, the area where her apartment was located has been inundated with tons of tourists going to and from Brooklyn Bridge Park. Having a fire station next door might have also been a contributing factor.
