CurbedFebruary 21, 2013
Celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz—who has shot the likes of Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, and Kirsten Dunst—is leaving Chelsea for the wide open spaces of New Jersey. ""I'm moving to horse country in New Jersey," Ruiz told the Post. "I'll be on 4 acres in a four-bedroom home with lots of space to possibly give my dog, Oliver, a sibling." That means he's putting his 2BR/2BA condo with a terrace in the Chelsea Stratus up for rent, starting March 1. For $8,900 a month, the new tenant gets a beautifully decorated apartment, outfitted with B&B Italia furniture, grey Lanzzoni sectional sofa, and a custom-designed kitchen with Pietra Cardosa stone countertops, lacquered cabinetry, and an Asko washer/dryer.

The building has some fun amenities, including an indoor basketball court, lounge with a fireplace, billiards room, a rooftop deck, a landscaped garden, and a fitness center. Ralph Modica and Vickey Barron of CORE has the listing.
