"I hold in my hands two photos of amazing apartments," we imagine Tyra Banks saying. "But tonight, one of you must leave me. Only one can go on in the hopes of becoming my New York apartment." And the sad pad to go is her two-bedroom, 2.5-bath Lafayette Street apartment, on the border between Nolita and Soho, which just hit the market asking $3,795,000. First reported by the Daily News, Banks bought at 225 Lafayette, also known as the Spring condominium, almost a decade ago (behind an anonymous trust) for $2,102,686. She joins the ranks of celebrities who have lived there and left, including John Mayer. Dakota Fanning rents there. If a buyer offers at her asking price, Tyra just may be smizing all the way to the, err, bank.
