So said Ogden Nash. Unrelated, mostly, 17 Dandy Drive in Cos Cob has dropped its price to $895,000 from $975,000. This 1950s split is a definite tear-down, eventually, and anyone who invested a huge amount of money into improving it would be a fool, but at the right price: $850, maybe? $750? — a hundred thou to make it livable for the next decade might be a decent decision. This is priced at just about land value now.
