When the stars of late night--Jay Leno, Dave Letterman, Conan O'Brien and the rest of the boys--finally pack it in and head home, they bed down in some pretty palatial places. Leno's 100-car garage has its own website; his rivals' pads (like Letterman's, at left) may be more publicity-shy but they're no less impressive. Rob Baer at Curbed leads us on a cross-country tour of estates, townhouses, apartments and car parks of the nighttime hosts.
The talking heads of late-night television rake in oodles of money for their nightly hijinx and some of them aren't shy about showing it off. Yeah, we're looking at you and your 100 cars, Jay Leno. Leno's fellow nocturnal comedians might not splash out on a gaggle of flashy rides-or set up a web site for their garage-but they sure invest in some palatial pads. Late night small-fry and SNL-alum Jimmy Fallon might be the new kid on the block, but he's well entrenched at this 1883 co-op overlooking NYC's private Gramercy Park above. In 2006, Fallon was thinking about moving out and put his two seventh-floor units on the market for $3.75M.
