The New York Times “City Room” Blog reports that Michael Mailer, son of the late novelist Norman Mailer, has put his father’s apartment, at 142 Columbia Heights, up for sale with an asking price of $2.5 million. For that you get a two bedroom, one bath (but with a separate small guest apartment with its own bath) fourth floor walkup, with roof access, that’s described as “resembl[ing] a jungle gym at sea,” as well as the cachet of inhabiting the same space as one of the most celebrated and controversial literary figures of the past century, and possibly (Mr. Mailer said “furniture and other artifacts” may be for sale) dining at the same table at which Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and Hunter S. Thompson once sat. (Photo: Marilynn K. Yee/The New York Times)
