The Greek Revival home at 70 Willow Street where Truman Capote once lived has had its price slashed by nearly a million bucks according to Curbed. Earlier this year the rumor was the the home had been sold but guess that didn’t happen, eh?
We chalk it up to the fact that a photo of a young and jumping Capote graced the cover of the original release of “The Boy with a Thorn in his Side” by the Smiths. Well at least it gives us an excuse to embed the video of that song (after the jump).
Curbed: The rumor this past spring was that 70 Willow Street, the Brooklyn Heights beauty once occupied by Truman Capote, had two offers. But nothing’s real until the deal closes, and at the Capote house, it hasn’t. In fact, the price just got chopped again, by nearly $1 million. The new ask: $14.995 million. A far cry from the cold-blooded $18 million the home originally hoped to fetch. Maybe Capote’s house and another writerly abode we know should compare notes.
