Although the Mr. And Mrs. Smith pair have always rented out properties during whenever they have stayed in the city, they now seems to be interested in the fortress-like luxury of Apthorp. "The gated courtyard means they can get in and out of their car without being hassled by paparazzi. The building also has several other exits," The New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.
It is believed that Pitt and Jolie are thinking about putting together three units in the building. "I heard they're ready to spend as much as 25 million dollars," said a source.
It is believed that the couple is beguiled by the hand wrought period details of the Apthorp, which was built in 1908 by the Astor family. Some apartments are as large as 13 rooms and boast 11-foot ceilings and 44-inch-wide hallways.
