Who: Marcel Duchamp
What: Studio
Now: Furniture & Lighting Store

Marcel Duchamp, a visionary of both the Surreal and DaDa movements, fled from Paris to New York City in 1915, at the start of WWI. In New York, he moved around different apartments and studios, but amongst all the moves there was one favorite studio he held ownership of until his death in 1968. In 2011, the location stands as a furniture and lighting store, but in Duchamp's time it was his haven for creativity.
