tom-cruise-carrying-suri-230.jpgTom Cruise is reportedly searching for a luxury home in New York so he can spend more time with his 6-year-old daughter Suri.

After Katie Holmes filed for divorce on June 28, the two reached a settlement earlier this month, and they also worked out a custody agreement which gives Katie primary physical custody with Tom being granted "generous visitation rights." Katie recently started renting an apartment in NYC where she plans to raise Suri, and in addition to his new east coast pad, Tom will keep the former couple's home in Beverly Hills.

A source told the New York Post, "Tom's looking for a new home here. He wants a fresh start. He doesn't want to go back to the East Village apartment where he was living with Katie. He's looking for something that's very private where he won't have to deal with going through a lobby, and people outside all the time."

The 50-year-old actor reportedly told friends his main concern is having enough space for Suri to play in. One friend added, "He also wants to have a nice amount of space for Suri, with outdoor space. That could mean high-end luxury apartments, but he's also looking at houses outside of the city or in gated communities."

After wrapping up filming on Oblivion in Iceland on July 3, Cruise flew to Los Angeles, and last week he traveled to NYC to spend a few days with Suri. On Sunday he jetted to London to prepare for his next film, All You Need Is Kill, so we're not sure when he's going to have time to look at properties!
