Dog days of summer be damned, the auction hammer is still falling all across this great land. In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brownstoner reports that the 3,172-square-foot house at 50 Maple Street?and what a house it is, at least based on the exterior shot?is in foreclosure after selling for $708,000 in 2003. The auction is scheduled for Thursday. Meanwhile broker-blogger Malcolm Carter reviews the roster of Manhattan co-ops going to the gavel on August 26 as part of a city estate auction. Most are small studios, but there's also an 825-square-footer in the 60 Sutton Place South post-war complex near the East River. The minimum bid is $580,000. Have at 'em, scavengers.
