HOBOKEN -- After a week of breathless speculation in the Mile Square City, the rumors are apparently true: according to the NY Post, Tim Tebow has rented an apartment in Hoboken, where he can theoretically live comfortably out of the spotlight’s glare.
Tebow has moved into uptown Hoboken, according to the Post, which maintains that the newest quarterback for the Jets has rented a two-bedroom apartment at 2 Constitution Court.
The waterfront apartment is just two blocks from the luxury Tea Building, where Giants quarterback Eli Manning resides.
The units typically rent at $10,000 a month, according to the Post. The building is less than a block from the river front and faces a small park embraced on three sides by the Shipyard complex.
In recent news, Mayor Dawn Zimmer recently engaged in a tweet-for-tweet exchange with a "parody" Tim Tebow account, "@HobokenTimTebow," who first tweeted on Friday that "he could not find a parking spot" in the city, and asked whether he should blame Zimmer.
Zimmer responded to the account via twitter.
"I am referring this to the authorities," tweeted Zimmer on Saturday. "Our newest resident to Hoboken is entitled to his privacy and respect."
Zimmer clarified later that day via Twitter that she did not know if Tebow was moving to Hoboken, adding, "we would be thrilled to have him as a member of our community."
AOL’s real estate blog speculated that Tebow might have preferred Hoboken because he’d be out of the publicity frenzy that would have ensued if he’d moved to Manhattan.
