On the heels of their recent brush with the law in Los Angeles, Katy Perry and Russell Brand are becoming New Yorkers...sort of. As the Daily Mail reports today, the couple just plunked down $2.7 million for a swanky two bedroom, two bath Tribeca pied-a-terre. They're calling the apartment an east coast "crash pad"-which according to The New York Post, may be a strategic gesture to minimize their state income taxes (Perry and Brand own primary residences in L.A. and London).[Video controversy: Katy Perry duet pulled from 'Sesame Street']
However they use the space, the soon-to-be-newlyweds will be nesting in style. The apartment spans 1,500 square feet (a palace by Manhattan standards!) and has its own private rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Soaring wood beamed ceilings and an open floorplan give the space an urban feel, and it's got all the usual amenities-slick, spa-like marble bathrooms, a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen-you'd expect from any A-list abode. Check out our slideshow for a tour of the new Perry-Brand home away from home(s).
