Sorry, I was mistaken on what he paid. It was listed by Douglas Elliman Realty and the son of the owner was the listing agent. It was put on the market for 1.6 Million and it may have sold for 1.2. Aside from remodeling the kitchen the new owner hardly did anything else. I wonder if it has finally sold.

I believe he paid about 1.7 K.
He had it on the market for two years before the NY Times article. I wonder if he's finally been able to unload it.
As I had an apartment on Chittenden Ave. across the street
from Pumpkin House, I jumped at a chance to attend an open house. While it was listed as five bedrooms, only the front bedroom and the rear "master bedroom" were serviceably sized. The three middle bedrooms were the size of the maid's rooms on Park Ave.
The best part of the house was the rented apartment downstairs. That was truly a gem. A broadway musical actress (or chorine) had rented it for about ten years and when the opportunity to buy at a co-op across the street, did so.
