Did Lindsay Lohan Go Downtown?

Once promising startlet turned tabloid catnip Lindsay Lohan is out of court ordered rehab and, after a firm talking to by Oprah Winfrey herself, has decided to ditch her European vacation plans and has—so the stories go—moved into an ordinary rental apartment in the heart of New York City’s Greenwich Village.

Yesterday Lindsay’s little sister Aliana was spotted schlepping a SUV full of mis-matched luggage into a fairly nondescript walk-up tenement-type building and later Lindsay herself showed up looking relaxed and casual in a pair of baggy sweatpants, chic aviator style sunglasses, and a camera slung around her neck.

Your Mama’s research shows apartments in the building in question run just under $2,600 per month for an unfurnished one bedroom and (roughly) $2,800-3,500 for one of the lower floor two bedroom places.

Previous reports indicated LiLo was to shack up with a sober coach but it’s not clear—at least to Your Mama—if Sober Coach is also moving in to the building and, let’s be honest, the apartment is a bit more downmarket than the pampered, part time actress is used to and it could very well be the apartment was actually rented by/for one of Lindsay’s younger siblings.

Fun fact of little import (swear to God or god or whatever): A hundred years ago Your Mama and The Chicken looked to rent an apartment in the very same building. Back then the rent for a dumpy two bedroom with almost no light was about $1,200 a month.

The children may recall that rock-n-roll princess Kelly Osbourne currently leases the Beverly Hills (Post Office) micro-estate that Lindsay leased last year before she was forced into rehab.

    That is my idea of moving. Have a relative schlep everything over then I show up looking glamorous and relaxed!

    When this girl was making $7 million a movie, where were her business managers advising her to buy an apartment in NY and a house in LA for some investment??! Instead she blew money living out of international, 5-star hotels and renting houses all over the place.

    My mom and I lived in this building back in the early 60s. Rent was $43 a month for a one bedroom.

    Seems highly unlikely that this is her apartment, and far more likely that it’s her sister’s, but as Mama always says, I know nothing.

    Anybody that would have the kind of parents that she does, would have major problems.

    Maybe this is part of her treatment, living a more normal, less fast-paced luxury lifestyle. There’s nothing wrong with living in this apartment.

    Girl is trying to get her feet on the ground.. yeah its pedestrian but she doesn’t stay anywhere for long. I assume its her less famous sis RENTAL apartment and irrelevant on a real estate website. I would expect a post like this on tmz, perezhilton or the other sites that already reported this non event .. slow news day?

    First step down the slippery slope to nonentity.

      Says person anonymously behind a computer.. She may be a mess but hopefully on the mend. You should keep your bleak outlook and opinion to yourself. Keep the negativity and anger to yourself, its not a cute look on anyone.
