Feces-Throwing Condo Owner at 259 Bowery Sells to Banker

Posted on: October 24th, 2011 at 12:11 pm by

Sculptor-turned-developer Charles Saulson was in the news for a minute back in August, thanks to a property line dispute at 259 Bowery.  The condo owner claimed that the adjacent eight-story art house, Sperone Westwater Gallery, encroaches on his building by a mere 4.8 inches.  And this being the Bowery, Saulson took matters into his own hands. Quite literally, actually.  The gallery folk alleged that their vocal neighbor tossed feces onto its terrace, and filed suit to have him barred from touching the building.

Now it appears as though Saulson is cashing out of 259 Bowery.  Indeed, Blockchopper reported on Friday that he sold the condo unit (number 6) last month to a Goldman Sachs veteran named Hart Lambur for $2.3 million.  Whether the sale is related to the fecal tossing saga remains unclear.
