New York Times columnist Roger Morris Cohen and his wife, Brazilian sculptor Frida Baranek have listed their perfect brownstone at 431 4th Street in Park Slope for $4.25 million, according to StreetEasy.

Since 1990, Cohen has worked for the New York Times, where he was a foreign correspondent for ten years before becoming the acting foreign editor on September 11, 2001. He has written an Op-Ed column in the paper since 2009. Baranek is best known for her sculptures, which have been displayed in museums around the world, including the Museu de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro.


The couple’s 4,600-square-foot Park Slope home has six bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It has a deck, garden, parquet floors, central air conditioning and built-in bookshelves. Looking at the images, it does not appear that the couple currently lives in the building as there is no furniture in it. 


It is unclear how much Cohen and Baranek paid for the home, which they bought in 2001, but city records show that they bought it from Carolyn and Richard Culliton, the television soap opera writers.
