Alicia Keys Rents Crane to Move Out of SoHo Penthouse

When it came to moving all her prized possessions, Alicia Keys didn't trust the elevators or stairs in the SoHo condo her and husband Swizz Beatz just sold. While moving her things out of the $15-million NYC penthouse, which she purchased from Lenny Kravitz back in 2010, the Grammy winning songstress hired a crane company to lift her stuff to the ground.

In busy Manhattan, this route may be the best move, especially for her piano. According to TMZ, the crane can run upwards of $1,000 per day, so it's not like she was scratching her deep pockets.

Keys and hubby Swizz are moving into their new mansion in New Jersey. The luxurious pad was previously home to actor Eddie Murphy.
