Count the 'Ninas' in This Wall-Size Al Hirschfeld Mural

CurbedSeptember 16, 2013
Here's the beautiful Manhattan townhouse that belongs to Grammy-nominated songwriter Michael Feinstein and Terrence Flannery, on the market for a whopping $17.9M. According to the Times, the duo bought the first half of the place—which had "high ceilings and grand rooms but not a sense of massiveness," apparently—for about $3M, later spending an additional $3.825M on the neighboring property in order to break combine them into a 25-foot-wide "grand house for entertaining." Herringbone floors are nice, and all, as are two kitchens, a "soaking tub from which a bather can survey the gardens," and "a man cave reimagined as a 16-by-11 foot dressing room with its own marble fireplace and a built-in center unit with a marble top and multiple storage drawers," but one of the real standouts doesn't actually come with the house: an enormous wall-size Al Hirschfeld mural depicting Feinstein's great showbiz peers, such as Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand.
