Madonna to buy a townhouse on the upper ES?
Could Madonna finally be moving out of her Central Park West compound? Though Her Madgesty purchased a third apartment in Harperley Hall last spring, we hear shes close to buying a $38 million townhouse on the upper East Side. Yes, shes looked at lots of townhouses, but word is, shes said shes ready to sign on this one. “Her current building is, frankly, beneath her,” says a source. “But she cant get past the co-op boards of better buildings.” Bonus on this townhouse: a private garage, which would cut down on paparazzi interaction. Interestingly, shed be moving just after Yankee Alex Rodriguez, with whom she was once so close, rented a $30,000-a-month pad two blocks away from her on CPW.
