Price dropped on $25M Park Slope Mansion, still ridiculously expensive

Remember how the former Park Slope Montessori school on on 8th Avenue was on the market for $25M, and we were all like, "ERMERGHERD, it's even more expensive than the DUMBO clock tower triplex penthouse, which is -- to date -- the most expensive piece of real estate in Brooklyn!" 

Remember that?

Well, after being on the market for only a month, the 9,788 square-foot building has been bumped down to only $18M! Lest you forget, the mansion comes with "a Tudor-style dining room, an Arts and Crafts library, and an 18th-century-style sitting room." Fancy. Before you go whipping out your checkbook and wondering if you're ready to drop Grandma's generous inheritance on a house, don't forget that you can lease that shit first to make sure you like it! If you've got $65,000/month you can rent it (and by "rent it," I mean "throw your money away, because what will you have to show for it?")

let's see how long it takes until it turns into another building like the one on 7th ave and 2nd st.. since it was a school i'm not sure he even has to pay property taxes although not certain. unlikely a homeowner would buy this when they can buy side by side brownstones on a park block for less than this. btw, the owners on 2nd street owe over $600,000 in property taxes on their building.
