7) A cleanup crew hired to clear out the West Village apartment of late photographer and reclusive hoarder Harry Shunk uncovered a trove of art work, including pieces by Christo, Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and Paul Jenkins. The Lichtenstein Foundation snapped up a bunch of photos in the apartment when Shunk died in 2006, but Daryl Kelly, who led the cleanup, found the Warhols, etc. There's no will and Kelly gets to keep and auction the prints. (That's one of his Warhols above.) [NYT]
