Mike Diamond – the founding member of the Beastie Boys – recently let The New York Times have a snoop around his spacious 3,200-square-foot Brooklyn townhouse, which he shares with his wife Tamra Davis and their two sons. The couple have now been living in the house for a year and a half, following from an extensive $500,000 six month long renovation process. Prior to moving, the family lived in a TriBeCa loft, but speaking to the NYT the couple say the change was worth it. Their older son can now walk home from school by himself, something which Mike D was never able to do growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. “It was traumatic,” he said. “A very different city.” The outside space is also a recent addition and is covered with eco-friendly artificial grass. “Having outdoor space in the city is life-changing,” Ms. Davis said. “Especially with two boys.”Photos: Trevor Tondro for The New York Times
