Brooklyn's former most expensive rental is back, with a price-chop of a whole $10,000 from its asking rent. The townhouse at 227 Clinton Street in Cobble Hill is now asking $25,000 a month, plunging it all the way to second most expensive rental in the borough. The six-bedroom townhouse between Amity and Congress streets is decked in many of its original details, like those extravagant crown moldings, but that doesn't preclude it from having modern trappings as well, including a "fully soundproofed man cave" and a teeny tiny backyard pool.
The townhouse is overtaken as most expensive rental only by the $35,000-per-month Gingerbread House of Bay Ridge.
