It was not the first time Swift's New York City home made headlines.

In April 2021, a stalker who claimed the singer was communicating with him on social media was arrested on a trespassing charge after trying to break into the townhome.

In Sept. 2020, bullets flew outside the building after an armed robbery at a nearby sneaker store. The wild incident happened near 153 Franklin Street. Swift purchased the $18 million building in 2017. She also owns several apartments next door.
