At this site publisher Steve Mass, curator Diego Cortez and singer Anya Philips opened the Mudd Club in a loft owned by artist Ross Bleckner. Named for Samuel Alexander Mudd, a doctor who treated John Wilkes Booth in the aftermath of Abraham Lincoln's assassination, the labyrinthine club became a major fixture in the city's underground music and counterculture scene - from punk rock to new wave. Revolutionary for bringing together music and art with a gallery onsite, up-and-coming artists Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, and Klaus Nomi became regulars, while musicians including The Ramones, Frank Zappa, and The Talking Heads memorialized the club in song.
