The Detroit-born actress Elaine Stritch is done with Manhattan and relocating to Birmingham. We've heard rumors circulating for a while that she's buying a condo out there but she's now told the News it is official. Stritch ran off to New York at the tender age of 17 and at one point managed to date Marlon Brando. The news writes, "Widowed from the heir of Bay's English muffins, Stritch, now 87, has talked for some time about returning to Michigan." Welcome home Elaine!
UPDATE: A source close to the actress confirms that Stritch purchased a condo in The Dakota for $1.5 M. It is a three-bedroom like this one we found on Trulia renting for $12,500/month.
