…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.”

  2. There’s gonna be a flood of portfolios at the VV submissions office.

  3. Hmmmm. Does the co-op allow pets? I don’t go anywhere without Tock, my watchdog.

    Because if they allow pets — I’ll take it!

    I’ve always identified him with New York, the city is very literally losing one of the things that made it the city that it is.

  5. I recently read his memoir, Backing into Forward, so good to hear about another new phase in his life!
