Famous residents of the San Remo apartments included Diane Arbus, Harold Arlen, John Barrymore, Bono, Eddie Cantor, Glenn Close, Jack Dempsey, Rita Hayworth, Dustin Hoffman, Mick Jagger, Barry Manilow, Steve Martin, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Mary Tyler Moore, Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Spielberg, Isaac Stern, and Tiger Woods.

I wonder if any other private residential building housed so many different celebrated people.
