Today, John Morse sent me a notice from "Brooklyn Brownstones"saying that the current owner of Big Gray has it on the market for a cool 2.2 million dollars. Who wants a 15 room Victorian for that price? The church who sold it to the current owner paid $70,000 for it in 1972.It was then, and it is now a White Elephant. Besides its age and difficulty to heat, the six story building facing the backyard has weighed down the land so that the building is structurally lower in the back .I think a prospective owner would have to address that at some point. Better to turn it back into a commune. Anyone interested?
