New York PostOctober 16, 2013Brooklyn Nets All-Star Paul Pierce and his wife, Julie, have just moved into a full-floor loft apartment in TriBeCa’s 90 Franklin St., the same building where Mariah Carey owns the penthouse. Pierce’s 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home, with 28 windows, was asking $35,000 a month and includes a woodburning fireplace.
Known as Franklin Tower, the 1915 building once served as the Corn Exchange Bank in 1930. The 18-story condo features a roof deck, gym and bike storage.
Pierce isn’t the only Nets player to snub Brooklyn: Fellow All-Star Joe Johnson also moved into a rental in the same ’hood last year.
CORE listing broker Oliver Brown declined to comment.
