After a Chelsea gallery owner dropped $7.6M on a West 81st Street townhouse, she vacationed in the Hamptons, only to come home to a house emptied of her most valuable possessions. A lawsuit says that since she never changed the locks, her back-stabbing broker slipped into the house and stole artwork, electronics, a crystal pen, a Hermes passport holder, "humidifiers, cigar boxes, and all of the woman's purses." The broker, David Kim, formerly of Corcoran, then stored the pilfered goods in his apartment on the same block, where police recovered the goods. [NYP]
