Einstein's vacation home went up for sale

One of the homes where Einstein vacationed went up for sale this year. The four-bedroom, three-bath home in Setauket, N.Y. can be yours for $659,000. The home was last on the market in the spring of 2002 when it sold for $592,500. "I was kind of elated to know that I was listing a place where he had stayed," agent Alexia Poulos told us. "I think it's a great spot for Einstein to have spent the days on the beach and come back to the house to find some quietness." The home is still on the market if you want to own a piece of history.
