Last week, accused rapist and former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was granted bail, on the condition in remain in New York and be monitored 24/7. He was originally slated to stay with his wife at the Bristol Plaza, which bill itself as "better than a hotel" and comes with daily maid service, but the tenants said not on their watch. He's since found a home in Tribeca and while he's not allowed to leave legal and medical appointments, plus weekly worship, the 6,800-square-foot townhouse, which is setting his wife back £30,000 a month, should provide plenty of room to stretch his shit out. Also included:

* a walled roof garden surrounded by "Japanese paper glass" screens

* limestone radiant heat floors

* fine Italian baths

* "rainfall steam showers"

* a home theater

* nearby restaurants such as Landmarc, which helpfully deliver (DSK had "£148-worth of steaks and salads" sent over his first night there)

* neighbors like Jay-Z and Robert DeNiro

* Maid service: unknown
