10. 24 Bond Street

Some of the most famous photographs Mapplethorpe took of Patti Smith were inside his apartment in 24 Bond Street, a famed building in Noho that birthed part of the DIY scene. In addition to a designation as an artists residency, many who lived there converted their apartments into loft performance spaces for jazz and other musicians. The statues on the facade, made for the Gene Frankel Theater in 1988, are still there, as well as the theater itself.
