UPPER EAST SIDE—The sale of the historic limestone mansion at 58 East 66th Street just hit public records, and the final sale price turns out to be $17.15 million. The former owner bought the house in 2008 for $14.5 million, gutted the whole thing, decided to forgo the actual renovation part, and put it back on the market. Incredibly, that strategy resulted in a $2.65 million profit. [ACRIS; previously]

DUMBO—This year's 18th annual DUMBO Arts Festival will be sponsored by developer Two Trees and will run from September 26 to 28, featuring, according to a press release, "'big headed' critics, hydroponic tomato plant sculptures, a traveling dance party, a tour of DUMBO's industrial history, and much more."
