Truman Capote's Heights House Sells for Borough Record

New, 5 comments

The Brooklyn Heights house where Truman Capote wrote "In Cold Blood," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," and other books has finally found a buyer?at a pretty significant discount off its original $18 million asking price. Of course, that ask was so far above anything else ever paid in the neighborhood that the final post-Chopper sale price remains impressive. That price, according to the Daily News, is around $12 million, a borough record. The buyer used an LLC to pay for the property, which has 18 rooms and 11 fireplaces. Relive the listing in our old gallery.
