TRIBECA—The news racing up and down the I-95 corridor is DSK's latest place to call home.

The monthly rent is $50,000 per month and it is the most expensive rental in the area. Click over for pictures of the inside.
DMV—Being green in a city usually doesn't involve composting unwanted vegetable matter, but it can now for the low price of $8 per week.
