If you’ve read any of Augusten Burroughs‘ memoirs (“Running with Scissors,” “Dry,” or “Wolf at the Table,” to name a few) you’ll know that his life was quite tumultuous. His NYC home, however, is just the opposite. The Battery Park City studio condo at 225 Rector Place is completely plain and neutral and void of any bells and whistles. His past partner Dennis Pilsits purchased the residence in 2008 for $600,767, but then transferred it over to Burroughs in 2011, presumably as part of their split. Now, according to city records, the New York Times #1 bestselling author has unloaded the pad for a mere $637,000.

The 615-square-foot corner condo offers incredible views of the Statue of Liberty and Hudson and East Rivers. The interior is pretty cookie-cutter, though the floors and kitchen look nice and new. The building offers a full-service gym, roof deck, and indoor pool with a steam room. As the listing states, “this investor-friendly superstar is easy-to-live and easy-to-love (and very likely easy to rent out!).”
