In Tom Cruise Real Estate News...

...in case any of y'all care, soon-to-be-divorced Tom Cruise is rumored to be looking at swank (and private) spreads in some of the more expensive communities around New York City where he can play daddy-host to daughter Suri when his visitation times come around.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

So the story goes in the New York Post this morning, Mister Cruise recently took Suri along to peep and poke around an unlisted, 11-acre waterfront spread with a 13,500 square foot main manse in the sleepy river side enclave of Sneden's Landing, NY.

Mister and soon-to-be ex-Missus Cruise already maintain a number of luxury residences that include a Beverly Hills estate bought in 2007 for just over $30,000,000, a gated compound above Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills—bought for close to $10,000,000 in 2005 and rumored by celebrity (property) gossips to be some sort of Scientology retreat, but we don't have any proof of that—a secluded mountain estate in Telluride, CO that Mister Cruise owned long before he ever married Katie, and at least one apartment at the American Felt Building in lower Manhattan's East Village.

There are rumors and reports Tom and Katie coughed up $15,075,000 for a six-story, 8,000+ square foot brownstone in Greenwich Village in summer 2009 but, in truth, we're not convinced they did and certainly we haven't seen any hard evidence of that.

And, of course, let's not forget the New York City apartment soon-to-be-third-ex-Missus Cruise secretly leased—or "secretly" leased, depending on your level of cynicism regarding the matter—as part of her marriage exit strategy. Other high-profile (full and/or part-time) residents of the building are rumored and reported to include Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, Lisa Stansfield, Bobby Flay, Kyle MacLachlan, and, up in one of the penthouse pads, Nick Jonas.

I wonder if this tidbit from the New York Magazine applies to any of the people you mention:

But over the past few months, it’s become clear that rich people are very, very afraid. Sometimes it feels like this was the main accomplishment of Occupy Wall Street: a whole lot of tightened sphincters. It’s not a stretch to say many residents of Park Avenue harbor vivid fears of a populist revolt like the one seen in The Dark Knight Rises, in which they cower miserably under their sideboards while ragged hordes plunder the silver.

LOL

Oh my goodness, but why on earth would we be surprised? Actors/Actresses being paid kazillions for their work, they surely have nothing else to do but buy buy buy, right? Keep it up, Mama, you just shine the light on it all.

I cant help myself..Good for Ms. Holmes for protecting her child and herself. One only needs to look at those celebrities who practice this "religion"..they are so unhealthy.. Kirstie (yo yo diet fraud)Ally, John (male rub a dub) Travolta?? Cruise took a little girl and tried to brain wash her, and guess what? Little girl grew up and has a mind of her own and made some VERY big girl decisions. I am sure the "church" is working on project next wife already. Just keep your daughter close Katie

Hey, Anonymous 2.43 pm. You're a dick. If you want to write posts like that, go and do it on some trashy little news weekly site owned by Murdoch. If you want to sarcastically comment on some tacky/crappy property someone who earns too much money is going to buy, stick around.

Snedens Landing is gorgeous - Rockland County just outside NYC.

"With its heavily wooded seclusion, eclectic variety of houses and, in some spots, a topography so rugged that some homes get no mail delivery, this sparsely populated hamlet epitomizes, to many of its homeowners, what country living is all about.

Yet it hugs the southernmost border of Rockland County, just a 15-minute drive to the George Washington Bridge and a not much longer drive to midtown Manhattan".

9:34 It's not your decision who or what is posted here. It's Mama's, and she approved 9:34's comments. So mind your own business. I enjoyed the comments and agree with them, too.

Cocky, controlling Tom will no doubt buy a huge estate somewhere in NY. After all his Mother, two sisters and their families, his teenage children, his cult friends and handlers all live with him most of the time. No wonder Katie bailed and took the child. Normal? Not even close.

1:08 Thanks for the info on the area. Sounds like an ideal place to live and have some privacy while still being near midtown Manhattan.

Thanks 7:12. I couldnt have done a better reply! I do usually try to stick to the real estate at hand, but thats why I started with "I cant help myself".

I hope his new place is full of mirrors. That is what he is said to like, or have liked. I thought what his first agent said about him was completely revealing: she said he stayed at her place for a while at the beginning and spent most of his time in a g-string admiring himself in the mirrors.

In other Cruise News, there is an excellent headshot on the recent People cover revealing a definite facelift scar best seen around the earlobe. Of course he denies anything as crass as plastic surgical enhancement. Truly the profession of illusion.

any idea about how they're planning to split their mutually owned properties? i'm curious about who's taking what. if tom keeps the mulholland property, maybe that would confirm the scientology rumors for some people....

She got nothing from him- except the invaluable scientolofy-free Suri
