Jules Feiffer Puts New York Home Up For Sale

It's one of those articles that's going to find a life of its own basically so people can repeat the whopping figures involved even though they'll pretend it's about an iconic figure leaving the city in which he was a fixture for decades: Jules Feiffer is going to stay out in Southampton full-time, and is selling his New York City home. I think there's a comics angle to it in that I've always suspected that real-estate deals have had a significant albeit minor effect on the comics industry, and not just for New York fixtures like Feiffer and before him Al Hirschfeld. Heck, one way that comics people measure success in conversations with one another is who owns a home and how much of it they own.
