Built in 1925-26, Louis N. Jaffe Art Theater Building (181-189 Second Ave., NYC, NY) was a Yiddish theater through 1945. Between 1945 and 1953, the Mafia-controlled 181 Club, one of the most luxurious gay and lesbian clubs in the country, occupied the downstairs of the building. From 1953 through 1961, the Phoenix Theater occupied the building, featuring GLBT performers like Montgomery Clift and Roddy McDowell. The front offices were converted into apartments, which housed gay residents including Jackie Curtis (drag performer in Andy Warhol films), photographer Peter Hujar, and artist David Wojnarowicz.

Jackie Curtis (1947–1985) was an American actress, writer, singer and Warhol Superstar. She was born John Curtis Holder, Jr. in New York City. "Jackie Curtis is not a drag queen. Jackie is an artist. A pioneer without a frontier", Andy Warhol said of his associate. In the 1980s drug addiction had taken control of her life, eventually leading to her death by heroin overdose at the age of 38. She is buried at Rose Hills Memorial Park (101 Mill St, Putnam Valley, NY 10579).
