Why oh why would Girls actress Zosia Mamet want to leave Bushwick, the Brooklyn neighborhood where she not only bought and renovated a three-story pink building last year, but also where her Girls character Shoshanna had her accidental crack-smoking adventure? The 26-year-old actress bought the mixed-use, eight-bedroom building with her actor boyfriend Evan Jonigkeit in November of last year for $1.037M; now the two are trying to unload their purchase for $1.6M. The details are all surprisingly normal: the pair has a hefty (read: $820,000) mortgage, a rug from Ikea, and pretty humdrum decor (unlike, say, co-star Jemima Kirke, who owns a very quirky Brooklyn pad). Plans, so it seems, were to convert the three apartments in the building into one single-family house, though it's unclear how far that conversion got before the duo decided to abandon the project.
