Brooklyn Underground Railroad Home for Sale for $4.5 Million

Oh what a convoluted tale is being told about one of the famous Duffield Street Underground Railroad homes, caught up in eminent domain proceedings. According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the home is on the market for $4.5 million -- and nobody knows exactly who put it up for sale.

It's possible, though, that attorney Angelyn Johnson, who has some murky connection with the tenant, has something to do with it. Johnson was charged in February by the Queens District Attorney’s Office as part of a six-person deed fraud ring, says the Eagle.

Listed as having a “Downtown Brooklyn Prime Location,” the eight-bedroom, four-bathroom, semi-detached home with a store happens to also have 20 stories worth of air rights.
