The 11-bedroom Brooklyn Heights home where Truman Capote once lived just hit the market for the third time in 70 years, and at $18 million, is likely to become the borough’s most expensive townhouse ever, according to the Daily News. Capote lived in the garden apartment from 1955 to 1965, when the 70 Willow Street mansion was owned by Broadway’s Oliver Smith, the set designer for “Guys and Dolls” and “West Side Story.” Karen Heyman of Sotheby’s has the listing.
