Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run" Home For Sale

Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run" Home For Sale

The house where Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" was born is up for sale, and there appears to be quite a bit of interest. Real estate agent Susan McLaughlin tells Jersey's "Asbury Park Press" that within a week of listing the property she's received roughly 80 phone and e-mail inquiries. She describes the five room, two-bedroom, one-bath house as a "Landmark Jersey Shore Cottage." The house is located on West End Court in Long Branch, New Jersey. Springsteen rented the house in 1974 and '75. It's where he wrote the material for the "Born to Run" album." The asking price for the home is 349-thousand-dollars.

McLaughlin adds that it's also the house Bob Dylan was apparently looking for a few years ago when he was picked up by police who did not recognize the music legend walking in the pouring rain. She explains that at the time Dylan was visiting the former homes of a number of rockers, "just looking to get the feel of the music and pick up the vibes of these properties," but he went to West End Avenue -- not West End Court.
