Rumored to be scouring New Jersey for a permanent home, Carmelo Anthony is currently renting four Upper West Side apartments, and his broker hinted the Knicks star refocused his search to Downtown Manhattan, the Daily News reported. Two of the apartments are in the Aldyn and Ashley buildings both off West End Avenue — for easy access to the West Side Highway and the Knicks’ Westchester practice facility. One of them is a 3,600-square-foot four-bedroom penthouse at the Aldyn, which Anthony rents for $19,000 per month. The Ashley, where singer Mary J. Blige also resides, lists a basketball court among the building’s amenities. Anthony’s broker, Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Prince Dockery, shot down earlier reports that Anthony and his wife, MTV’s La La Vasquez, were looking outside the Big Apple. “We looked for apartments with similar qualities as Carmelo’s other homes in Denver in Los Angeles,” said Dockery, who specializes in high-end Lower Manhattan properties. “The key thing is the family wanted to be in New York and didn’t opt for a 10,000 square-foot home in Westchester or New Jersey.” Anthony will make more than $100 million through 2015.
