Truman Capote is so known for saying, "I live in Brooklyn. By choice" that the line is plastered on the listing for the townhouse he once lived in at 70 Willow Street. But no one else is choosing to live in this particular property. It's a beauty?9,000 square feet, mahogany staircase, columned porch, 11 fireplaces?but the initial $18 million ask was steep. Subsequent pricechops apparently haven't helped, despite rumors of two offers on the property. Now the price has been cut again, to $13.995 million. The house still has a shot at the borough sales record, but not if this keeps up.
