4. Theatre 80 St. Marks

Theatre 80 St. Marks has a rich history going back to Prohibition. Located at 80 St. Mark’s Place, the theatre was a speakeasy turned into an artists’ haven during the Golden Era of Hollywood. If you look down while standing in front of the theatre, you can see New York’s version of celebrity handprints and footprints from that time. Jazz greats like Thelonius Monk and Frank Sinatra performed there. Before being an important space for artists, it was at one point a cinema. Today, the Museum of the American Gangster shares the space with the theater, along with a bar.
