This stately Murray Hill townhouse was once home to famed commercial artist Birney A. Lettick, whose illustrations often graced the cover of Time magazine. In fact, his original studio remains intact. In the early 1950s, it was owned by Frederick Lewis Allen, then the editor of Harper’s Magazine. Located at 121 East 35th Street, the home was built in 1856 and has five bedrooms and a garden-level apartment. It’s on the market for $4,495,000.
