jennifer lopezThere's no place like home, and no one knows that better than Jennifer Lopez. The "Booty" singer just dropped a cool 22 million dollars on a new apartment in her hometown of New York City, and let me tell you, it was worth every single penny. J.Lo will now be living the highlife in one of only four apartments located in the same exclusive prewar Whitman building where Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon have set down roots. Described as a "luxury fortress" by celebrity real estate broker, the luxury penthouse apartment boasts round the clock security, as well as its own gym and private elevators.  And those are just the amenities. Wait until you hear about (and SEE) what the inside of her new abode has to offer. It is absolutely EVERYTHING you would expect the diva would want in a New York City pad.

First of all, the apartment is huge! The 6,250-square-foot apartment penthouse has four bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor space spread across four different terraces that overlook the Big Apple's gorgeous Madison Square Park. To put it in perspective, this apartment is so ginormous, it spans the entire length of a New York City block. As for the apartment's features, jeez Louise! The penthouse features a gorgeous custom kitchen, wide plan rift oak floors, Italian marble slab in the bathrooms, and a smart home system that'll allow the diva to control everything from her light to her music to her heating from her iPhone or iPad. Not too shabby for a chica from the Bronx.    

To say the least, J.Lo's new digs are a far cry from her childhood home. Earlier this month, she reminisced with E! Online at Variety's Power of Women gala about the time when she and her sisters, Lynda and Leslie, shared not only a bedroom, but a bed as well, in their humble but happy home in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx. It was in that bed, she said, that she and her sisters would stay up and dream of a better life for their future families. It would take a lot of hard work, and even a short but memorable stint in which she was homeless and sleeping on a dance studio couch, but the multitalented star's dreams were finally realized. And how! Now the 45-year-old singer-actress-mami is sitting on top of the world in her dream home. Check it out!
