Jay Maisel’s Former Residence 190 Bowery Opens For One Night Only

Now is your chance to go inside the historic 190 Bowery building

190 Bowery, originally Germania Bank, was the private residence of photographer Jay Maisel for over 50 years. Maisel bought the building in 1966 for just over $100,000, and lived in the 72 room photo palace until last year when he sold it for a cool $55 million.

Since then it has been buffed of its infamous graffiti-covered exterior in order to transition into an office space.

But, before 190 goes corporate, the new owner, Aby Rosen, will open the doors to the public for one night only. A developer and art collector, Rosen sent out an invite announcing a group art exhibition First Show / Last Show, which is curated by Vito Schnabel. The show will feature work of Joe Bradley, Dan Colen, Jeff Elrod, Ron Gorchov, Mark Grotjahn, Harmony Korine, and Julian Schnabel. See the full invitation via The Lo-Down.
