NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Anna Sorokin is back on the streets of New York after spending four years in prison and later being sent off to ICE custody in 2021. Now, the infamous fraudster is under house arrest. She has a government-issued GPS monitor around her ankle after being released on October 7.

Despite being out of prison, the conwoman seems to have retained her lavish lifestyle. She is now living in an apartment in New York City's lavish East Village where the rent reportedly costs $4,250 a month, according to Page Six. This looks like an upgrade from her bare Orange County detention center cell, where she spent the past 17 months for stealing approximately $275,000 from luxury hotels, associates and financial institutions. However, the question remains: How can Sorokin afford life in New York?

Sorokin lives on the fifth floor of her Manhattan apartment which is decorated with one bed, two chairs, and a small table, and the rest of the space is occupied by her artwork. She had held a successful exhibition in May. Moreover, the 31-year-old had been making original artwork during her prison time all thanks to her representative Chris Martine who helped her gain art supplies behind bars. The fake German heiress paid her rent after selling her artwork for $10,000.

According to the outlet, Sorokin is aiming to afford her lavish New York lifestyle through her artwork. Moreover, she previously received a hefty cheque of $320,000 from Netflix for their crime series 'Inventing Anna' based on her life. However, as per the words of the con artist herself, all the money went to her lawyers and compensation for her crimes. "That money was gone before I left prison," she said.

Now, while Sorokin admits to New York being expensive, she still found it "difficult" to travel via subway to meet her probation officer. She burns through $160 of Uber trips back and forth from her parole. When asked if the only way of transport is in giant SUVs, Anna said, "No. I’m allowed to take any mode of transportation."
