Carmelo Anthony and Lala Vazquez are looking for a home in the NYC vicinity but rent in NYC is super expensive, so the new NY Knick and his wife are looking in the budget friendly New Jersey. NYC (or really Manhattan) does not have the back yard (for their son Kiyan) or sparling estates that New Jersey or maybe Westchester may have. NYC has not been ruled out but the couple are still searching.
According to TMZ,
Carmelo Anthony and Lala Vazquez want outta New York City — when it comes to ridiculously expensive housing anyway — and they’re actually eyeing New Jersey (GASP!) … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the NY Knicks star and his wife tell TMZ they have no interest in plunking down “$30,000 a month for an apartment” in Manhattan … no matter how shmancy it is.
Melo just got a $65 million contract extension, so money isn’t the issue — instead it’s all about a backyard and space for the couple’s 3-year-old son to play. We’re told that’s why they’re seriously shopping the wide open spaces of Jersey — and passing on a luxury pad near the one Alex Rodriguez just bought for $6 million.
Other NYC ‘burbs are still in the running, but If Melo keeps dropping 26 per game … he can live anywhere he wants (except Boston) — and Knicks fans will love him.
