<Superficial blog post alert>
I've been meaning to start a list of all of my celeb sightings, before I forget them! Here goes:
Chuck Close, on W. 12th Street (with his wife, I think and their dog).

Gary Shteyngart, sitting next to me on a bench in Tomkins Square.
Morgan Freeman, in a car on Rivington Street, filming a movie.
Alan Rickman, walking on Broadway in Soho. I heard his voice first, of course, then confirmed with a glance followed by a double take.

Gabriel Byrne, walking & smoking, late at night in Soho on West Broadway
