Street smart, pork bun flipping chef, author and television personality Eddie Huang is looking for a Brooklyn neighborhood where the munchies get you even higher. And apparently Prospect Heights is cooking up something good.
The “Fresh Off the Boat” author is swapping Fort Greene for Prospect Heights, according to public records.
Huang paid $1.3 million for a penthouse apartment located at 525 Dean Street. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Jessica and Jeremiah Zinn are the sellers.

“I got to make fun of my boy eating a pear in the men’s locker room. I got to tell Plan B jokes. I told jokes about panda shit. I mean you can’t really do that anywhere else. It’s fun,” Huang said on Vice’s Munchies, regarding having dinner with hooligan friends. “And we’re not knuckleheads. We’re not idiots.”
Huang owns the Taiwanese eatery Baohaus in the East Village and his memoir “Fresh Off the Boat” inspired the ABC television show of the same name. He also hosts the Viceland show “Huang’s World.”
“Yo, let’s take a step back and do the OG shit,” Huang says of his cooking philosophy.
