Known as “The Mansion” in the show, the Andrew Freedman Home was originally a retirement home that was abandoned during the 1970s. In The Get Down, Shaolin Fantastic, played by actor Shameik Moore, decides to live there after his home burns down in a fire ignited by the fictional gang, the Savage Warlords. The group of friends begin to practice their Hip Hop skills in the large home. The Andrew Freedman Home was eventually repurposed into a community center and residency, where many artists, including Hip Hop legend Kool Herc still lives.
