Actress Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt looking for New York digs

American actress Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be looking to buy in Manhattan.

Brad Pitt and Jolie have rented when they've come to town. Recently, while Angie's been shooting "Salt," the Brangelina brood has divided its time between the Waldorf Towers and Rupert Murdoch's Rosehearty estate on the North Shore.
"The gated courtyard means they can get in and out of their car without being hassled by paparazzi," says a source. "The building also has several other exits."
That could buy them a lot of space, considering Douglas Elliman has slashed prices from $3,000 per square foot to as low as $1,500.

Pitt, who is something of an architectural historian, is bound to be beguiled by the handwrought period details of the residence, built in 1908 by the Astor family. Some apartments are as large as 13 rooms and boast 11-foot ceilings and 44-inch-wide hallways. And restoration-minded buyers can customize the raw space to their liking.
The Apthorp has long been celebrity-friendly. Nora Ephron and Cyndi Lauper are among those who rented before the condo offering. Among those who've checked out the conversion have been actors Alec Baldwin, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, and Knick David Lee and his model-girlfriend Sabina Gadecki.
