The Buddhist-broker babble in the listing for 165 East 82nd Street Street says "nothing will ever compare to the serenity that envelops you once you’ve crossed the threshold, and feel truly “far from the city’s tumult. Indeed, HAPPY is the man." Wow, that must be one hell of a townhouse! The 7,000 square foot house is actually pretty impressive if you're into a certain aesthetic, especially if you're really into having many, many Buddha statues scattered around the house. The owner of the place is Alexis Brink, a supposed master of Jin Shin Jyutsu, an "ancient Japanese healing art." The healing must be pretty profitable since she picked this place up for $4,600,000 back in 2006. All that happiness infusion doesn't come cheap though, now it's on the market for $16,500,000.
