A pink Upper East Side townhouse, filled with quirky pen-and-paper renditions of Broadway and Hollywood stars, was sold for $5.31 million, $150,000 more than the asking price, Curbed reported. The four-story, 4,160-square-foot home at 122 East 95th Street belonged to Al Hirschfeld, whose sketches of celebrities and Broadway show casts appeared on the covers of magazines and accompanied New York Times reviews, and evidence of his six decades in the home can be found surrounding the fireplace and on walls throughout the living areas. The house first hit the market in February, and went into contract within three weeks, according to Curbed. It was marketed by Anne Snee and Rhea Stein of the Corcoran Group. Hirschfeld first bought the now-landmarked property in the Carnegie Hall Historic District in 1947, when it housed workers at a nearby brewery, according to previous reports. [Curbed]
