Having already spotlighted the Park Slope digs that vünderkind novelist Jonathan Safran Foer has put up for sale, it's our distinct pleasure to direct you to the Elliman listing for the Park Slope townhouse at 646 2nd Street that Foer and wife have reportedly purchased (asking was $6.75m). Notes FishbowlNY, "We just figured that, with, say 20% down on a $6.75 million house in Brooklyn...JSF is still going to have monthly mortgage payments of about $32,375 a month." Thank God the kitchen already has the requisite extremely large and incredibly shiny Viking range.

UPDATE: JSF tells Boldface Names that the place is not yet his: "We've been talking to people about the house but it is absolutely not a done deal."
