Enjoying a little time away from the set, Chace Crawford was spotted out and about in the West Village of New York City on Thursday (August 27). The "Gossip Girl" hunk toted a red folder in-hand, glancing over at following paparazzi before continuing along on his way. Meanwhile, Chace recently chatted with Interview magazine about his real estate experiences, which have been a bit troublesome at times.
"I’m obsessive-compulsive about the placement and cleanliness of my things. But I’m not always the best, so I had a housekeeper come every two weeks," he explains. "It was pretty immaculate, I have to say. It had its down points, but Ed and I ran a good ship there for a while."
As for his latest move, Crawford tells, "They give you, like, a $7,000 relocation fee, which goes a long way if you’re like my buddy shooting Friday Night Lights in Austin, Texas, but in New York you have to deal with a $7,000 broker’s fee. It takes more than double that to move and set everything up … So I called up Ed and was like, ‘Hey, man, I’m going to New York tomorrow. Do you want to room with me?’ He’s like [faking British accent], ‘Yeah, why not?’ So I looked around and sent him a few pics of the place I found, and he said [faking British accent], ‘Is there any extra room for guest bedrooms?’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about? This is New York. What do you want, a game room? Let’s just make space for a Ping-Pong room as well.’"
