Advice To Jenna Bush On Her Move To New York City

Jenna Bush is about to become a New Yorker. She and hubby Henry Hager have sold their townhouse in Baltimore, moved out in an unmarked truck last week, and are reportedly now house hunting in New York City. Which will be convenient for Jenna since her twin sister Barbara already lives in the Village (that is where she is supposedly crashing at the moment) and because it will bring her closer to the “Today” show studio, where she is an occasional correspondent.
