Forget California! These Celebrity Families Call NYC Home! (Photos)

Heidi Klum loves living in NYC with her kids.

When you think of celebrities, California and the West Coast naturally come to mind, along with perfect weather, flawless tans, and bikini bodies. While many famous faces choose to enjoy the sand and surf that the western side of the United States has to offer, plenty of them are perfectly content to call New York City home.

California definitely has glitz and glamour, but any fan of the East Coast will tell you that nothing quite compares to the hustle and bustle of NYC. I honestly get a natural high just being there. I love the sights, the smells, the sounds…everything!

Heidi Klum is one celeb mom who lives in New York, and she recently told PEOPLE magazine that she and her family love to take advantage of everything living in the Big Apple. Heidi said, “We do everything that the city has to offer. From driving on the sight-seeing bus to the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty and the museums. We’re going to watch Spider-Man [on Broadway] — my son is really excited about that.”

Heidi isn’t the only person who loves residing on the East Coast. Take a look at our slide show below to see other celebrity families who call New York City home.
