When legendary cartoonist Al Hirschfeld died in 2003, he left behind the unusual Upper East Side townhouse that he had lived in and worked out of since the 1940s. The property sold for $5.3 million in 2011 to Denise and Paul Lachman, who respectfully renovated the 20-foot house on East 95th Street while maintaining two of its most notable features: its bright pink facade, and the eight-foot mural depicting celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin that presides over the living room. The Lachmans relisted the townhouse for $9.2 million last April, and now the Observer reports that the property has found a buyer at an ask of $8.75 million.
