- Carmelo Anthony Hunting for a $30K/Month Downtown Rental

Anthony's 27 leads Knicks to win at electrified Garden

Instead of looking for a place to buy, Anthony is searching for a downtown rental in the $30,000-a-month range. We hear he has expressed interest in a unit at 158 Mercer St. — the same building where Jon Bon Jovi lives and where Bernie Madoff’s son, Mark, committed suicide.

Anthony also has his eye on a rental at SoHo Mews at 311 West Broadway. And he’s considering the West Village too.

Knicks fans shouldn’t read much into the fact that Anthony might be a renter and not a buyer. Athletes, even those in New York for the long-term, often rent trophy pads. In fact, fellow Knick Amar’e Stoudemire is renting a West Village condo for $37,500 a month.
