266 Michigan Rd. I wrote about this property a couple of months ago as it came up for auction and suggested that a couple of Greenwichites could pool their resources to buy it and convert it into an aging-hippie sort of commune. Far out, man! Apparently you didn’t listen because, so far as I can tell, the auction didn’t work and the place is still for sale. Funny how these auctions generate a blizzard of press releases before they take place and then whimper off into the darkness afterwards. Remember that Taconic Road auction that made the New York Times? Last I heard, the few bidders who showed up all presented personal checks, against the stated rules of the auction, and the first couple of them bounced. The sellers are said to be regrouping.
