Artist William Wegman is best known for his fantastical photos of his Weimaraner dogs, which were even turned into a series of murals at the 23rd Street F, M subway station. Early in his career, he bought the East Village building at 431 East 6th Street, a former synagogue, turning it into his studio and residence. In 1996, he sold it to poet Paola Igliori, and other owners over the years have included artist Jack Sal, curator Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, and documentary filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Now, the very unique space is looking for a new artist-in-residence. The main-floor duplex is being sold for $2,749,000 or along with the street-level art gallery for $5,495,000.
