Despite being enclosed in glass and boasting an impressive wrap-around balcony and stunning views, Amy said she loves that it's "like a fancy rich person's apartment" and yet it has a family vibe.

Amy didn't reveal where she's planning to move, but hinted at Brooklyn as they want to be closer to their son's school. 

"It's pretty obvious where we are going," she said. "If you leave this borough, what borough do people usually move to? It's not rocket science."
