Phil Jackson, 68, has officially made his move to the Big Apple for his role as president of the New York Knicks. Now the 13-time NBA champion (as a coach and player) has a place to rest his head.

Built in 1883, Jackson's 2,600-square-foot apartment is in the Osborne co-op on 205 West 57th Street at the Gilded Age residence.

According to the Los Angeles TimesNeal J. Leitereg, the apartment includes "a stately wood-paneled library, wood-burning fireplaces clad in limestone, a dining room, a gallery, a living room, an updated kitchen, three bedrooms and three bathrooms."

Signing a five-year, $60 million contract with the Knicks has given the Zen Master a little spending money.
