NYC has finally approved an apartment building with a separate entrance for ‘poor people’. I thought this day would never come! Hopefully the divider walls aren’t made of glass and they’ll be forced to make eye-contact with their lessers! That would just be so groosss!

!! OMG, it’s AirBn-Basquiat: Jean-Michel Basquiat’s former Soho loft on AirBnB for $650 a night !!

2013-08-12-basquiatairbnb1.jpeg
I’ve been addicted to cruising AirBnb lately. There are so many dope, unbelievable places all over the planet to stay on there. Whoever’s in charge of their site design does a great job of compartmentalizing sections to get lost in. One minute I’m looking at igloos in Innsbruck or private islands in Brazil, and the next haunted castles in Australia.
Adding to that list of unique places to rent via the site is the former Soho loft of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat who died in 1988.
Don’t get the wrong impression though. This isn’t a crash pad for a junkie anymore. The new owner clearly states:

“You MUST be very peaceful people. This is NOT a ‘party loft’ situation. You MUST be able to walk up 4 flights of stairs. No smoking.”

Check out more pics and the listing for Basquiat‘s former digs after the jump.
