The famed Mudd Club opened its doors at 77 White Street, steps away from The Roxy, in October of 1978. For five years Mudd Club supported New York City’s downtown music, fashion, and art scene giving exposure to artists and performers like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Lou Reed, The B-52’s, and Anna Sui. Mudd Club housed Basquiat, Haring and friends offering a safe haven to create and even sleep.
The Bowery Mission has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879. This year, The Bowery Mission provided more than 382,400 meals to men, women and children, 93,700 nights of shelter and 46,800 articles of clothing, as well as showers, haircuts, and expert medical and optometric care. Each meal and every night of shelter is an invitation to its residential recovery programs, where lives are transformed from hopelessness to hope.
