Rihanna:New York State Of Mine!

67275_53281

According to the New York Daily News, the singer’s new digs are in an apartment building right on the border of Chinatown and SOHO in Manhattan.  The Lafayette Avenue building has some pretty high priced units and this particular duplex was actually on the market for over $14 million, but Rihanna was able to rent it at a much more reasonable price.

The loft apartment, located on the 11th and 12th floors of the building, has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a 2,4000 square foot wraparound terrace with fabulous views of the city.

It also has a six foot deep bath tub in the master bathroom that gives a direct view of the Empire State Building.

Frank Lucas’ home was located at 933 Sheffield Road in Teaneck, New Jersey. This modest home looks nothing like the huge mansion that appeared in the 2007 film American Gangster. Hollywood takes

liberty with the truth as usual.

Manhattan: New York Living

nyc rent

 

Rents are up, up and away in Manhattan.

The warmer weather kept the heat on the borough’s rental market in May, according to two reports.The median rent for a Manhattan apartment rose 3.5% to $3,200, according to Douglas Elliman.

 

Forget about getting any kind of goodies from landlords. Just 4.4% of  transactions offered a concession, which amounted to an average of 1.2  months’ worth of free rent or its equivalent.The borough’s vacancy rate was down sharply to 1.6% from 2.5% a year ago.A separate report from Citi Habitats showed the average rent in May was $3,448, up $81 from April and up $10 from a year ago.

 

The borough is now just $13 away from the rental market’s all-time high of $3,461 reached in August of last year.Tenants can blame the improving economy and a lack of inventory for rising rents.
“Although there are several large rental projects in the pipeline,  there is little new product in the near term,” Citi Habitats President  Gary Malin told the Daily News. “Our research shows just around 1,500  new rental units to market in 2013, compared to over 3,200 in 2014.”

Eve: Love Is Blind

Eve tells Black men to have some seats because she loves her White king!

Rapper Eve recently made headlines for her comments about wanting her future children with her Caucasian boyfriend Maximillion Cooper to be raised “colorblind,” which were met with some criticism from fans and critics online.

Via The Grio reports:

“I don’t want them to see color. I never did,” said 34-year-old Philly native said in an interview with Vibe Vixen. “I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a black thing, even though I grew up around all black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races.”

The emcee, whose new album Lip Lock is in stores now, clarified her “colorblind” statement in a video interview with theGrio, saying she’s surprised that the topic of interracial dating is even relevant to the public anymore.

“At this point it still annoys me that race is such a big issue in 2013,” Eve said in the interview. “Like, get over it.”

During the interview, Eve points to the number of famous black men who have dated and married outside of their race, including the current poster children for interracial dating in hip-hop. Eve believes the media coverage of her love life is disproportionate because she’s a black woman dating a white man.

“What the f**k is the problem?” Eve says, referring to Kardashian and West. “She’s not black. They’re not the same race, but no one says a thing.”

“I don’t understand it,” she adds. “Black men have been doing it for years.”
