So she loaded up her truck and moved to Beverly…(or Malibu, that is.)

It took a couple years and some serious discounting, but Britney Spears is finally selling her New York penthouse apartment and officially gettin’ out of the Big Apple.

According to the New York Post’s Braden Keil, the pop starlet’s 4,440, four-level pied a terre in the famous Silk Building has gone to contract for $4 million, though it was originally put on the market two years ago for just under $6 million. An eight-room condo, the NoHo pad has three bedrooms and 4 ½ baths, as well as 13-foot ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, and a large rooftop terrace and solarium. Its proximity to a busy stretch of Broadway provided local residents and NYU students with frequent sightings of the Britster, whether at Tower Records or the local Starbucks.

There’s no word on who the buyer is, but he or she certainly has a legacy to uphold: Before Britney, previous occupants of the Silk Building have included Keith Richards, Russell Simmons, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and Cher.
