  • Look Out, Upper East Side: Downtown Manhattan is Coming for You By Nikki Hess | June 14, 2013

    The Upper East Side is a Manhattan neighborhood synonymous with high culture, wealth, and luxury. Historically, it has been viewed as the place to live for those who have a "little extra" in their bank accounts, and its hefty price tags have no doubt served as a reflection of such. Nevertheless, in recent years, the chic uptown area has been facing fierce competition from its friendly neighborhood competitors, and according to recent reports, it has been ousted from its number one spot for the city's priciest homes by none other than the trendy, cronut-filled SoHo.

    He’s a New England Patriot who has twice won the NFL Most Valuable Player award, and she’s a supermodel beauty who has an estimated net worth of $250 million. Together, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen make one very lovely married couple, and they are now raising a family with their children, three-year-old Benjamin and four-month-old Vivian. The New York Post reports that this very hot celebrity couple is now looking for a new home in the West Village, and given that we had tried helping out Lady Gaga with her apartment hunt, we think it’s only fair that we find some good home choices for the Brady-Bundchen bunch as well.
