Jenna Bush leaves Baltimore for New York

So long, Jenna. We hardly knew ye.

Former first daughter Jenna Bush, who moved to Baltimore in the spring of 2008 with her husband, Henry Hager, has moved to New York.

The Baltimore Sun reported last week that the Hagers had moved out of their Federal Hill home and put it on the market. Monday, The Washington Post's Reliable Sources said Bush is moving to Manhattan to be closer to her sister, Barbara, and to be able to do more work for the morning show "Today," where she's been a correspondent since last year.

The couple bought their two-story, 1880s rowhouse in March 2008 for $440,000 and moved in shortly after their May wedding. Hager had a job with Constellation Energy, which he still has, while Bush took a position with SEED School of Maryland, a public boarding school in Baltimore. She left the teaching job this fall.

The Hagers' three-bedroom, three-bath, end-of-group property, listed last week for $474,900, boasts a private garage, "luxurious sea grass carpeting" and unspecified "security features."

While living in Federal Hill, she was spotted from time to time at Regi's American Bistro and other spots around town.

When the couple first moved to town, they had Secret Security protection. That eventually ceased. This summer, two Trek mountain bicycles were stolen from the Hagers' garage while the couple was out of town.
