Jessica Plunks Down for Palms Place

Maybe Jessica Simpson is smarter than we think -- now that real estate prices are tanking, she's looking for a pad in NYC, and, as TMZ has just learned, she just got a place at Palms Place in Las Vegas.

We're told that Simpson just closed on her one-bedroom suite at the luxury high rise next to the Palms Casino Resort, and she's among the first buyers at the new complex.

Amongst other perks, she can get her L.A. tan on at the new Drift Spa and Hammam (which we we've just been told is a Turkish bath), which will house Brit's ex-favorite fake-bake joint, Sunset Tan.
