Bill Murray took his dying Williamsburg neighbor to dinner

billmurrayI swear I’ve been trying to hold off on posting about Bill Murray’s Williamsburg adventures, but this tidbit is too nice not to share. When Murray was living in 475 Kent last summer, he was an excellent Williamsburg neighbor. From NY Times:

Either way, the building remains a big draw for the high-achieving creative set. Already home to an admirable stable of established photographers, artists and musicians, it saw the arrival last summer of Mr. Murray, who was shooting a film in Brooklyn with Naomi Watts. A quiet presence, Mr. Murray went on to melt residents’ hearts when he took one of their neighbors, who was dying of liver disease, out for supper at the nearby upscale restaurant, Diner. “He was very down to earth, and demure,” said one resident, who did not want to be identified.

So yeah, he’s the best.
