Watch Out For This Landlord

Be warned, because at the rate he's amassing properties in Brooklyn and Harlem, "cross-dressing killer" Robert Durst could be your landlord. The estranged scion of one of New York's first families of real estate, who disguised himself as a woman when living in Texas and was allegedly involved in the disappearance of his first wife and the killing of a neighbor, has over the last two years quietly acquired one 25-unit rental building in Cobble Hill, two in Williamsburg, and two in Harlem. More details might be forthcoming, but Durst was arrested last week for trespassing at his brother's home, and that's occupying his time: "I'd like to talk to you about how great the properties are and how great Brooklyn is, but now is not the time. Call me in a couple of months... I've got a lot of shit going on right now." [DNAinfo; previously]
