Vanessa Bryant

Shops for NY Apartment

Bye, Bye, L.A.?

Vanessa Bryant and her kids were in New York City over the weekend, looking for a big ol' apartment ... TMZ has learned.

Real estate sources tell us ... Vanessa won't say if she's packing up and moving from California -- but she definitely wants to buy a place in NYC.

It's not exactly a sign that she's reconciling with Kobe Bryant, even though the two were kissing after the Lakers game on Valentine's Day.

Vanessa now owns 3 estates in Newport Beach, after Kobe transferred title to her as part of their divorce -- which has not yet become final.  And, as we first reported, Vanessa will score a total of $75 mil in the settlement.

As for whether Vanessa would move away from California ... we're told she thinks Lakers fans and Lakers wives don't like her -- at least that's the way she perceives it.

No doubt ... if Vanessa did move, it would royally screw Kobe up.  He still loves her, wants her back, and doesn't want his kids to live across the country.

Our real estate sources say Vanessa made it clear -- Kobe knows she's shopping in the Big Apple.

Dam Kobe, she really didn't care too much about the cheating, that's part of the gig. She didn't like the fact that you did nothing to keep it on the QT. You can only embarrass someone for so long. If you get her back, she will OWN YOU.

California is a pretty big state and not everyone here follows the Lakers. If I was in her shoes I think I'd rather be in flip flops than snow boots.

First of all...these kids are not ugly! I've seen real ugly celebrity kids on the net, and these girls are not ugly.
Stop being a jeaulous hater, just stop.

And if she wants to take her half and run, that's her business. He cheated...so yeah.

But it's really funny how she waited till after the 10-year period to file for divorce. lmao. 'Eddy,I want half! Half Eddy!
