The Manhattan apartment where Taylor Swift lived – and which inspired her song ‘Cornelia Street’ – is for rent.
The house, on Cornelia Street in New York’s West Village, was the subject of the self-titled track on Swift’s 2019 album “Lover.”
The apartment, which comes with a pool and lots of space, can now be rented through Corcoran for a whopping $45,000 (£37,000) a month.
The listing begins by referencing a line from the song – “I rent a place on Cornelia Street” – going on to explain: “Yes, this is the house that built the song. Famous as the home of superstar Taylor Swift, Built in 1870 as a carriage house and transformed into a stunning Modern-inspired home with a proven track record, direct entry garage and swimming pool, located in the heart of the West Village.”

On the other hand, the antitrust panel of the United States Senate is going to hold a hearing on the lack of competition in the ticket sales sector after Ticketmaster’s problems in managing the sale of Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” last week.
The company announced last Thursday (November 17) the cancellation of general ticket sales for Swift’s 2023 North American dates, citing “extremely high demand” and “still long ticket inventory.”
Ticketmaster pre-sale for ‘The Eras Tour’ on Tuesday (November 15), including long waiting times and website outages.
Ticketmaster later said there was “unprecedented demand”, as “millions” of Swift fans tried to get tickets. Since then, it has been reported that 14 million people tried to buy through the website that day, and 2.4 million were successful.
On Friday (November 18), Swift said in a statement that Ticketmaster was “confident” that they could handle the huge demand, but admitted that some fans were “having a very difficult time trying get tickets.”
The company later issued an apology to those who had a “terrible experience” browsing its website, writing: “We strive to make purchasing tickets as easy as possible for fans.”
It has been reported that the US Department of Justice is opening an antitrust investigation into Live Nation – the company that owns Ticketmaster – even though some US lawmakers have taken issue with the companies.
