6. The Original Factory 231 East 47th St.
Warhol moved to his studio to a new location at 231 East 47th Street in 1964 and called it the Factory. Inspired by photographer Billy Name’s apartment which he lined with aluminum foil and silver paint, Warhol commissioned Name to turn his space into a silver wonderland. Known as the Silver Factory, the fifth floor studio was a breeding ground for creativity, madness, and art for the rich and talented minds of the 1960s. The Factory had several locations during Warhol’s life, including the 6th floor of the Decker Building at 33 Union Square West, 860 Broadway, which is now a PetCo, and 22 East 33rd Street.
