Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and his wife LaLa have been on the hunt for an uptown apartment since last fall. They checked out a 3BR/3.5BA at 1055 Park, but now the Post reports that they've signed a lease on a larger unit at 1212 Fifth Avenue. The place has five bedrooms, plus a media room and library, four and a half baths, a private elevator entrance, and they are renting it for $29,000/month. The master suite has a sitting room and two walk-in closets, and the marble bathroom is outfitted with radiant heat floors. The building has a fitness center, lounge, and children's playroom, but we bet their son Kiyan calls dibs on one of the three spare bedrooms for his play space.
