Maurice Sendak's Former NYC Pied-à-Terre Asks $3.15M

New, 1 comment


New to market in New York: the city digs of the late author, illustrator, and one-time muralist Maurice Sendak, who published more than 100 children's books, most famous among them, Where the Wild Things Are. According to the Journal, Sendak, who bought the two-bedroom in the late '70s or early '80s, primarily lived in Connecticut, but used the co-op as a writer's retreat and studio. Memorabilia in the home—including posters and a toy from Where the Wild Things Are—are not included in the $3.15M ask, but it sounds like a deal could be arranged. Profits from the sale will go straight to the Maurice Sendak Foundation, a nonprofit that grants money to artists. Take a tour, above.
