Dominique Strauss-Kahn Released from Riker's Island on Bail

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was settling into a new, temporary abode on Friday on New York's Broadway but he was a long way from the neon lights and theaters that make the street famous.

The secure building, at the south end of Broadway near Ground Zero, will be under constant surveillance, with the veteran French politician in the custody of a private security firm after being charged with sexual assault.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn is out of jail, but instead of living under house arrest in a ritzy Manhattan apartment building that his wife had secured for him, the former head of the International Monetary Fund will stay downtown while he faces charges of sexually assaulting a chambermaid.
