Letter to Andy Warhol From Landlord About Artist’s Wild Parties Unearthed
During the '60s, pop artist Andy Warhol rented studio space on 47th street in Manhattan, which he famously dubbed "the Factory." Warhol produced some of his most iconic creations there, and also held some pretty crazy parties, attended by the likes Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, Salvador Dali and William S. Burroughs, among others.
In 1965, Warhol's landlords had had enough of all the hubbub, and sent the artist a letter which alleged his party guests had been making a mess of the building, and reminded him that his lease doesn't permit for such raucous congregations.
