Bruce Springsteen’s New Jersey home where he wrote his 1975 album Born To Run has gone up for sale.
The five room abode is located at 7 1/2 West End Court in Long Branch, New Jersey, and Springsteen lived there from 1974-75. It is the location where he composed his third album which helped to break him into the mainstream.
The home has been described as a “landmark Jersey Shore cottage,” and the two bedroom home is now available for around £350,000, according to the Asbury Park Press.
Keller Williams Realty estate agent, Susan McLaughlin, stated, “It went on sale Friday, and I’ve had about 40 calls and another 40 contacts, mainly through emails.”
The home is often stopped in front of by thousands of tourists a year, and it also the property that Bob Dylan was searching for when he was detained by police in 2009.
McLaughlin stated that Dylan, “was visiting the former homes of Jim Morrsion and a number of rock stars, just looking to get the feel of the music and pick up the vibes of these properties. He went to West End Avenue and this is West End court.”
Adam Schneider, who is the Mayor of Long Branch, said that he didn’t think the home would be turned into a museum, revealing, “A museum would be fun but as a practical matter I don’t think it’s going to happen. I don’t think we can buy the home with taxpayers money.”
However he did suggest that if Springsteen was to play a benefit concert then they might be able to afford it.
