Can You Guess Who Kelsey Merritt's Neighbors Are At Her Brand New NYC Apartment?
One is a former One Directioner, a couple are the leading ladies from You've Got Mail and the Hunger Games, while a fourth is nicknamed Queen Bey.
That's right—Filipino-American Victoria's Secret model Kelsey Merritt is in for one heck of a time with her new address!
The 22-year-old who moved from the Philippines to New York last year to pursue a full-time modeling career has found a new home, and this time, it's in the heart of Tribeca, arguably one of the Big Apple's most hip and happening neighborhoods, where some of Hollywood's bright stars also reside.
She announced the news on Instagram earlier this week and accompanied the post with a handful of Instagram stories showing her jazzing up her new pad; unpacking boxes of clothes, setting up furniture, and dressing up blank walls.
And in case you still hadn't picked up on our hints, Kelsey's new place brings her closer to the likes of Harry Styles, Jennifer Lawrence, Meg Ryan, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Swift, and Jake Gyllenhaal, all of whom own at least one property in the neighborhood.
It comes to no surprise that the high-end Manhattan community (many of which sell for at least $4 million and up) has attracted celebrities given the uniqueness of its residential properties; unlike your usual, ultra-modern, sleek apartments found in other parts of the city, Tribeca's are mostly rehabilitated industrial buildings from 19th century New York.
Many of them have maintained their large windows, high ceilings, and naked brick walls, all of which add to the allure of stylish industrial living. What was once a neighborhood of vendors specializing in milk and butter is now home to some of the US east coast's most covetable addresses, and now, Kelsey can call it her very own, too!
Her Tribeca crib is sure to be her headquarters while she's overseas completing modeling projects or endorsements, yet the Metro.Style and Metro cover girl will continue to shuffle between the United States and the Philippines from time to time. According to her Twitter, her next trip back home will be soon, as she'll be in Manila by December 14th.
All in all, we can't wait for Kelsey to share snaps of her apartment's finished look! Who know, she might just throw parties in her new pad in the future, with her famous neighbors as her VIP guests!
