Norman Mailer’s “Nautical Wonderland”

The New York Times has an article on writer Norman Mailer’s final home in Brooklyn Heights. Now on the market for $2.5 million, the home (described as a “quirky cross between a Victorian parlor and the cabin of a sailing yacht”) features knick-knacks and mementos such as a campaign button that says “I would sleep better if Norman Mailer were mayor” and a Wurlitzer jukebox. Mailer’s children are considering selling some of his possessions, but for now you can see them in the article’s slideshow.

    $2.5 million split between 9 kids? I give them about 30 seconds to realize the same thing that any good car-stripper does…the parts are worth more than the whole. Don’t be surprised to see those possessions end up on an auction block in the near future. Cynical, I know, but I’ve been there.

    Apart from the lack of wheelchair accessibility and my not having a spare 2.5 million laying around, it looks like a great apartment. I was able to pick it up from the Promenade based on the furniture from the Terrace. Also, the NYTimes gave the wrong address. Do people think that was intentional?
