At 57 East 66th Street:

The Pop artist best known for his silkscreens
of cultural icons, including Jackie Kennedy,
Marilyn Monroe, Chairman Mao, and Campbell's Soup
cans, lived here from 1974 to 1987. The founder of
Interview magazine and producer of underground
films such as Chelsea Girls (1966) and Trash (1970)
predicted, "everybody will be world-famous
for fifteen minutes."'
