House Where Bruce Springsteen Wrote ‘Born To Run’ Up For Sale
A little more than a week has passed since Bruce Springsteen‘s former home located at 71/2 West End Court Long Branch, New Jersey was placed on the market for $349,900 by one of its three owners, and already real estate agent Susan McLaughlin of Keller Williams Realty has received a whopping 40 phone calls and another 40 emails regarding the estate.
The other two owners have agreed to partner with anyone willing to buy a third of the house.
Springsteen lived in the five-room, two-bedroom and one bath cottage in 1974 and ’75 and while writing his most iconic album to date, 1975’s Born to Run. He was 25 and 26
According to the Asbury Park Press, rock legend Bob Dylan was looking for the landmark home after being detained by the Long Branch police in 2009. While visting the homes of rock stars like Jim Morrison to feel the musical vibes, Dylan mistakenly went to West End Avenue, not West End Court.
Realtor McLaughlin is hoping that the house would be transformed into a music museum by the city of Long Branch. However, Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider has no intention of spending taxpayers’ money on the Springsteen home.
