You may have to be living under a rock not to have heard anything about Jeremy Lin and his rise to fame, a Cinderella story this New York Times reporter
calls "the most infectious grassroots movement since the Tea Party
Through a string of circumstances, Lin now finds himself as the unlikely star of a much maligned New York Knicks team — a situation so surprising, seeing as just a week ago, he was sleeping on his brother's couch (let's hope it was a Togo
), uncertain whether or not the Knicks would guarantee his contract for the remainder of the season and unwilling to find a permanent home on the East Coast.
But after a string of exceptional play and a stellar performance against the L.A. Lakers last night, Jeremy Lin is now in the market for a home. This report
confirms that a broker has shown Lin two properties: a Manhattan apartment
owned by a teammate, and a house in Westchester County.
My vote is for the Westchester
County house. A sweet pad in the city next to the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce would be nice and all, but nothing makes me happier than the thought of Lin — whose parents crashed at a relative's place in Elmhurst, to watch his game against the Lakers last night — hosting his entire extended family in a sprawling home just outside the city. And the New York Post reports
that the Westchester house is close to the Knicks' practice
facility in Greenburgh.Houzzers, let us know in the Comments section which property you think Jeremy Lin should pick: apartment or house?
And while you're at it, feel free to share Houzz photos that you think his soon-to-be hired interior designer should include in his or her sourcing.
