Literary couple buys Brooklyn Heights brownstone

Documentary filmmaker and writer David Schisgall, and his wife, Vanity Fair writer Evgenia Peretz, purchased a single-family brownstone at 16 Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights for $5.7 million, according to The Real Deal blog.

The 3,650-square-foot home was built in 1901. Schisgall and Peretz purchased the three-story brownstone from Katherine and Peter Darrow.

The closing price puts the sale in the top 10 for Brooklyn Heights in recorded history, according to the Real Deal.
