We recently came across some photos of Keith Haring’s apartment on Broome Street in the 1980’s. It was a railroad flat with prewar-ish lines. Haring totally ignored and defied “prewar”…and transformed it into a very original space, graffiti’d like crazy. EVERYTHING was a canvas to draw on. We especially love the fridge and his unique extra bedroom solution.
We have read that since Haring and his boyfriend Juan Dubose shared the apartment with a friend.
To maintain some privacy, they slept in a camping tent. We’ve considered tents, along with other structures, in our mental imaginings of pop-up guest rooms and room dividers and forts to give our guests some privacy. We would have loved to have seen Haring’s.
