Collapsed Ceiling Gooses Brownstone Price

Recollect the charming tale from a few weeks back about the roof caving in at a brownstone open house at 142 Bergen Street in Boerum Hill? Our price-cutting speculation aisde, Brownstoner reports, via the NYT, that the property received a bunch of offers within hours of the open house and went to contract for $1.68 million?above the $1.595 million asking price. When even caving ceilings can't crater this real estate market, perhaps a bigger crash of some sort lies ahead? (Or not! Oh, just go ahead and buy something! Who the hell cares at this point?)
