Famed New Yorker cartoonist’s Upper West Side home lists for $1.8M

The Upper West Side home of New Yorker cartoonist Mort Gerberg is on the market for $1.79 million.

Gerberg was Steve Martin’s choice for favorite New Yorker cartoonist in a 2019 article in the magazine. (The cartoon depicted a performing seal at an audition with the caption: “Of course, what I’d really like to do is direct.”)

In June, Gerberg was awarded the National Cartoonist Society’s Gold Key Award.

Gerberg and his wife Judith bought the two-/three-bedroom, two-bathroom prewar co-op, at 35 W. 82nd St., 44 years ago for $36,000. 

It was his home and the studio where he created his work.

It’s on the eighth floor with city views and a snippet of Central Park.

The home — half a block from Central Park — comes with a $2,575 monthly maintenance fee.
