This past weekend I rewatched one of my favorite movies, Midnight in Paris, in which the main character Gil Pender (played by Owen Wilson) travels back in time to 1920s Paris. Among the prolific artists he gets to meet are F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, arguably one of the most fascinating couples of the 20th century.
Well, now you can own part of that golden history, as F. Scott Fitzgerald's former house in Bolton Hill is for sale. The 3,600-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath Victorian townhouse is located on Park Avenue and comes with a private garden, fireplace mantels, and a garage. The asking price is $450,000.
A plaque on the front of the house reveals that Fitzgerald published Tender is the Night (1934), Taps at Reveille (1935), and essays from The Crack-Up (1934-36) all while residing here.
To see what inspired the great writer, you can take a tour at an open house this Sunday from 12-2 p.m.
