Maurice Sendak used his pied-a-terre at 40 FIfth Avenue mostly as a work studio when he visited the city from his home in Connecticut. The 2BR, 2BA apartment, decorated with a few Sendak-specific touches like Where the Wild Things Are toys and posters, came on the market in March with an asking price of $3.15 million. It has now sold, NYC Co-op Apartment Sales notes, for $3.125 million. The proceeds from the sale go toward Sendak's foundation, which gives grants to artists.
