President Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is running for the U.S. Senate from New York, are looking for a New York City apartment for use after the president leaves office in January 2001, the New York Post reported Sunday.
The apartment would serve as a second residence for the Clintons, who purchased a house in suburban Chappaqua last year.
Two possibilities are a two-bedroom condominium apartment on tony Park Avenue and a three-bedroom on Central Park West. Each is listed at just under $2 million, the Post said.
The Clintons' primary considerations are proximity to Central Park and midtown media outlets and at least two bedrooms, the report said.
A spokesman for Clinton's Senate campaign denied to the newspaper that the first couple was apartment-hunting, saying that "it certainly comes as news to Hillary."
Mrs. Clinton is currently locked in a close race for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Her opponent is Long Island Republican Rep. Rick A. Lazio.
