NEW YORK — New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin, who famously slept on a teammate’s couch the night before his breakout performance, now has an apartment of his own.

The two-bedroom rental is on the 38th floor of the residences at the W New York Downtown Hotel and overlooks the Statue of Liberty.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Lin signed the contract Wednesday.

The apartment was listed at $13,000 a month. Matthew Moinian, the son of W’s developer, says Lin got a better deal, but he declined to disclose the price.

Lin was waiting to see if the Knicks would guarantee him a contract before he got his own apartment. In the meantime, he stayed with his brother and a teammate.

Lin is now signed with the Knicks through the season.

In Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, Lin had 17 points and nine assists, and sat out most of the fourth quarter in a rare easy game that ended with the Knicks on top 99-82.

The Knicks visit Miami tonight in their final game before the All-Star break, and Lin’s emergence has the Heat’s attention.
