The Beautiful Brooklyn Home Of Norman Mailer

Located above the Brooklyn Heights Promenade on Columbia Street, the home of renowned author and one-time New York mayoral candidate Norman Mailer is a fourth floor walk up in a 25-foot wide townhouse. Redesigned in the 1970’s with a focus on the nautical, the home has the look and feel of a ship, complete with a hammock, a trapeze swing dangling from the ceiling and a rope ladder.

Traversing the three-story home requires climbing ladders and narrow stairs while access to the writer’s office requires braving a narrow gangplank. With a terrace overlooking the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline, Mailer’s home is privy to some of the best views in New York City, making the $2.5 million asking price almost reasonable:
