Would someone please be so kind as to remind me of the title and author of the science-fiction short story described in the details?

Extraterrestrials arrive on Earth. They are not as smart (IQ-wise) as we are, but their civilization is more advanced than ours technologically because their race is much older. At the end, a human tries to sell them the Brooklyn Bridge.

This sounds like an episode from the original Twilight Zone series. I wonder if they based it off of that same short story.
