Mural at the Palladium

Mural at the Palladium

Paradise Garage, 84 King Street
Keith Haring’s favorite club, Paradise Garage was a safe haven for the LGBT community of the late 1970s and ’80s. He once said the club was his Pantheon, the place where he meshed music, performance, and art, inspiring himself and other artists. Haring’s pal Madonna wore her best Keith Haring plastic dress suit during her breakout performance of “Dress You Up” at the club in 1984.

Sexy Bathroom, 208 West 13th Street
A special, very dirty mural of dicks adorns the men’s bathroom at the LGBT Community Center. The epic black-and-white mural, called Once Upon a Time, was painted to pay tribute to the 20th-anniversary of the Stonewall riots back in 1989. The piece suffered deterioration before Sotheby’s Tobias Meyer and partner Mark Fletcher had it restored.
