It’s not quite the Factory but the 1880s Lexington Avenue townhouse where Andy Warhol created the Campbell’s Soup and Dollar Bill series just sold. In 1959, Warhol paid $60,000 for the home he shared with his mother. The recent asking price was $4.295 million. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Heights home where Truman Capote penned both Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood is still up for grabs for a cool $15.9 million.
