Angelina Jolie and Family: Moving to NYC?

Angelina Jolie brought her two seriously adorable daughters, Zahara, 4 1/2, and Shiloh, 2, on a shopping spree at Lee’s Art Store in New York City yesterday.

But fingerpaints apparently aren’t the only thing that Jolie and her brood are shopping for in New York lately. According to the Daily Mail, Brad and Angie may be shopping for an apartment in the Big Apple too.

It would only make sense that Angelina Jolie, 33, and Brad Pitt, 45, are possibly choosing New York City as one of their permanent home bases. After all, it’s where the United Nations is located, and Jolie has a strong affiliation with the organization. She’s one of their Goodwill Ambassadors, and even came close to going toe-to-toe with the Thai government recently over the plight of Muslim refugees from Myanmar.

The about-to-throw-down-with-old-pal-Jennifer-Aniston actress was said to be eyeing an apartment in New York’s Upper West Side yesterday.

Another reason for Jolie’s real estate scavenging could be that she wants a citified headquarters during the filming of her upcoming spy thriller Salt.

The Jolie-Pitts already rented a Long Island mansion to stay in during the NY filming, but an apartment would be much closer to the city.
