As an ambassador of New York City, Taylor Swift should be getting to know how the rest of us saps live. Maybe she could take up residence in a micro-apartment or something, at least for a little while, during this difficult time when her $19 million Tribeca penthouse gets renovated and probably cleansed with smoldering sage following her last break-up.
But while we may want to know how the other half lives, the other half is certainly not interested in how we live—so instead of hitting up Craigslist for a rental in the Cemetery Belt, Swift has rented a $40,000/month, four-story carriage house in the West Village. A New York City carriage house is the New York City real estate dream, so who can really blame her.
The four-floor home, built in 1912, was owned by Soho House chief technology officer David Aldea, and maybe it still is? Maybe he comes with the rental? Maybe he's just always chilling by the indoor pool? Because it does have an indoor pool. Ugh, this article is over. Click through for a look and then burn your eyes with smoldering sage to forget this kind of living exists.
