One chapter in the story of novelists Nicole Krauss and Jonathan Safran Foer’s divorce is written in their real estate records.

Krauss, the author of “The History of Love” and “Man Walks Into A Room,” bought Safran Foer, the author of “Everything is Illuminated” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” out of their Park Slope townhouse at 646 2nd Street, paying $3 million, Real Estate Weekly reported.

The literary couple divorced in 2013, around which time they listed the four-story, 6,200-square-foot house for $14.5 million. They dropped the price to $13 million last year.

The pair bought the building in 2005 for $5.75 million.

Records of the transaction unearthed another bit of news: Safran Foer was the mysterious buyer of another Brooklyn townhouse, at 374 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill, which sold for $5.4 million last year. [Real Estate Weekly]Ariel Stulberg
