    Rihanna's Soho Rental Has Plenty of Umbrella Storage

     

    Who rents those huge Soho lofts with asking prices to make a financial planner do a spit-take on a tall glass of Alka-Seltzer?

    Celebrities, of course, who parachute into town for a few months at a time and desire a home in the heart of the action. The latest, the Post's Jennifer Gould Keil reports, is pop star Rihanna, who'll shack up for the summer inside a 2,300-square-foot 3BR spread in the newish Mercer Greene at 92 Greene Street. According to Keil, RiRi will pay $18,000-per-month for the apartment, which is listed for $22K/month. Sweet, a bargain!

    Though the article says the apartment is a penthouse, the listing's floorplan (seen above) is actually for unit #2A in the seven-story building, a kinda-sorta duplex with a 464-square-foot rear deck—meaning penthouse owner (and NASCAR racer) Brian Vickers will soon have a more interesting view when he eventually looks down. Rihanna's landlords paid $3.745 million for the apartment two years ago, and per the listing, the unit is available for 1-5 months and smokers are not allowed. We're sure her many rapper collaborators will be on their best behavior when they drop by.
