Carmelo Anthony Rents Four Upper West Side Apartments
By Leslie Albrecht
UPPER WEST SIDE — Why rent one apartment when you can have four?
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has rented "at least" four apartments on the Upper West Side, including some in swanky buildings at the Riverside South luxury development, the New York Daily News reported.
The fancy residences are for Anthony, his relatives and assistants, according to the News. Anthony's broker told the paper that some of the apartments are in The Ashley and The Aldyn, on Riverside Boulevard near West 64th Street.
The Ashley features an indoor pool, climbing wall and, luckily for Anthony, an indoor basketball court.
Anthony made headlines in February when his wife, Alani "La La" Vazquez, was spotted at the Aldyn scoping out apartments.
Apparently the building passed the test — Anthony is now renting a 3,600 square foot penthouse pad there for $19,000 a month, the News reported.
The Aldyn and The Ashley are down the block from The Rushmore, another posh highrise where Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez recently bought an apartment.
Actor Robin Williams and violinist Pinchas Zukerman recently rented apartments in the building, according to Curbed.
