EXTRA:

From NYCurbed.com ~

Behind the Black Door with Anderson Cooper at 84 West 3rd
Anderson Cooper has gone from hot red to basic black outside his nearly-restored fire house at 84 West 3rd Street in Greenwich Village, where he hopes to set up house before too long. The old garage doors leading into the 1906 Fire Patrol House No. 2 now present a very formidable face, entirely ebonized and declaring "NO PARKING ACTIVE DRIVEWAY" in bold gold letters. AC's move-in date remains a mystery, and the Department of Buildings indicates that the Certificate of Occupancy hasn't yet been issued, showing 13 outstanding requirements. But the silver fox isn't wasting any time getting things together inside, including stocking his gym with historically appropriate equipment, as he recently revealed to USA Today when he let this slip about his eBay shopping spree: "I'm moving into a new building in New York from 1906, so I'm making a gym from the turn of the century. I just bought the old kind of weights with big large balls on the ends. Back then there were gymnasiums, climbing ropes in the ceiling: It's an old firehouse [so] I want it to keep the old firemen's gym."
