Norman Mailer's $2.5 million Brooklyn Heights apartment is off the market?a phrase that obscures, as one might expect from Mailer, a more dramatic story. Buyer Wesley Golby signed a contract for the apartment at a price of $2.08 million but now contends that the Mailer estate didn't provide proof that the modifications made to the apartment?including the crow's nest designed to help Mailer overcome his fear of heights?were done legally and met building codes. Golby wants his deposit back and is filing a legal complaint; the Mailer estate's lawyer is calling it buyer's remorse. [NYT; previously]
