Director Errol Morris Buys Charming Brooklyn Heights Pad


6sqft is reporting that documentary film director Errol Morris, known for such movies as The Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line, has bought a very charming three-bedroom co-op in an 1855 Brooklyn Heights townhouse from the estate of Nobel Prize-winner and U.S. Poet Laureate Joseph Brodsky. If those walls could talk... they'd probably be able to recite a lot of poetry. (But who knows if they'd understand it. They're walls.)

Morris and his wife, poet Julia Sheehan, paid $1.9 million for the duplex apartment, $100,000 over the asking price. The apartment features 16-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, a wood-burning fireplace with original mantle, and original stained-glass transoms in the windows.
