Cartoonist's Carnegie Hill Townhouse Sells for $5.31 Million

New, 2 comments

The quirky pink townhouse that belonged to artist Al Hirschfeld, who lived and drew his theater caricatures there from the 1940s until his death in 2003, went into contract only three weeks after hitting the market in February. The sale has officially closed, and apparently the Hirschfeld-painted fireplace tiles and caricature wallpaper were a draw, because the final price was $5.31 million, a smidge above the $5.295 million asking price. The buyers, Paul and Denise Lachman, paid $1,276/square foot for the house, and if Paul Lachman is the White Nights Foundation CFO of that name, the arts connection makes sense.
