In its post-war heyday, the San Remo was a meeting place for an unparalleled array of figures from the Beat movement, the New York School of poets and painters, and The Living Theater.

Regulars included Allen Ginsberg, Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Miles Davis, Frank O'Hara, Judith Malina, Jackson Pollock, James Baldwin, and Gore Vidal, several of whom first met here. Many of them immortalized the San Remo in their writings. These literary and artistic iconsbecame the voices of their generation, and their impact still resonates today.
