Brooklyn Heights – Mailer, Miller, & Capote all called it home

In a story published on Friday, March 12, 2010 by Jason Sheftell, the Daily News Real Estate Correspondent, he writes about the new novel, The Heights by Peter Hedges, author of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. I’m sure the novel is worth reading, but what caught my attention was his discussion of Brooklyn Heights as one of the most beautiful places to live in New York. He also has some nice photos to go with the story. Read more about the novel and Jashon Sheftell article.
