…from selling his house.
Famed cartoonist/playwright/screenwriter/all-around genius Jules Feiffer is leaving Manhattan, and selling his Upper West Side apartment, a biggish four-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath affair that he probably paid far less than $4.395 million for 34 years ago.
Feiffer reports he’s moving to the country—Southhampton, L.I.—permanently, and working on a new graphic novel. After having created iconic cartoons for the Village Voice for decades, Feiffer’s leaving the thrum of the city is a bit sad, but it happens to most of us. “You begin each day coping. There’s a kind of built-in abrasiveness living in the city. You wake up and you start dealing with the events of the day. If you don’t start dealing, you fall behind.”
