If you’re looking to drop half a mil a year on rent, have we got the place for you! Okay, actually, Sotheby’s has the place for you, but whatever. The historic and storied house (Truman Capote once hung his scarf in the ground-floor apartment) at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights is now on the market as a rental for $40,000 a month. The 1939 Greek Revival home is on an extra-wide lot and boasts a prize-winning garden. (We published photos of its window boxes back in June of 2005.) We were particularly jazzed by the back porch. Imagine the lazy summer afternoons out there. Can anyone think of a more expensive residential rental to have come on the market in recent memory?
