Buy Buy Brooklyn: Hall Street Listing Has Artistic Legacy

The former Brooklyn residence of legendary artists and one-time couple ""Patti Smith"":http://www.pattismith.net/intro.html and ""Robert Mapplethorpe"":http://www.mapplethorpe.org/ is on the market for $1 million. The townhouse was home to the pair in 1967, and the property has received recent attention following the release of Smith's 2010 memoir, _Just_ _Kids_, in which the flat is mentioned prominently.

However, the unit has been significantly updated since Smith and Mapplethorpe rented the pad, and though Smith once called the now posh pad ""aggressively seedy,"" the 2,640-square-foot home currently boasts amenities including ultra-high ceilings, exposed brick walls, and parquet floors. Located on Hall Street in Clinton Hill, the property's million-dollar price tag reflects Brooklyn's increasing popularity, but according to ""Zillow"":http://www.zillow.com/blog/2012-08-06/brooklyn-townhouse-for-sale-has-iconic-bohemian-pedigree/, the singer and photographer were lucky enough to snag the townhouse for just $80 per month back in the 60s.
