Place
- In the summer of 1953 Andy Warhol and his mother moved into a floor-through apartment in a four story building at 242 Lexington Avenue. According to Warhol biographers, David Bourdon and Victor Bockris, Warhol subleased the apartment from another ex-classmate at Carnegie Tech., Leonard Kessler.
- No. 13 E. 87th St was the first studio outside his home, rented in 1963. Warhol subleased part of an old firehouse near his home, Hook & Ladder Co., that the tenant was leasing from the City of New York.
- 158 Madison Avenue was Warhol’s last personal studio.
- Andy Warhol bought 57 E 66th St, a brownstone, in 1974 for $310,000. He lived here until his death in 1987.
Andy Warhol Factory locations:
• 1342 Lexington Ave: The first Factory in 1960. This was his home and studio and the first Factory location. “The town house bought by shoe ads,” Andy’s friend Emile de Antonio called it, and it was true: everything Andy owned was paid for with a ceaseless flow of hundred-dollar drawings of shoes, hats, scarves, perfumes, handbags, and other ladies accessories... In 1960, Andy would gross $70,000, his best year yet, and when 1342 Lexington had come up for sale he was easily able to put down $30,000, almost half of the building’s price..."
• 231 E 47th St: The Silver Factory, from 1963 to 1967, the building no longer exists.
• 33 Union Square E: The White Factory, from 1967 to 1973, Decker Building.
• 860 Broadway, from 1973 to 1984, the building has now been completely remodeled.
• 22 E 33rd St: from 1984 to 1987, the building no longer exists.
Life
Who: Andy Warhol (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987)
Interviewed in 1980, Andy Warhol indicated that he was still a virgin—biographer Bob Colacello who was present at the interview felt it was probably true and that what little sex he had was probably “a mixture of voyeurism and masturbation—to use his [Andy’s] word abstract.” Warhol’s assertion of virginity would seem to be contradicted by his hospital treatment in 1960 for condylomata, a sexually transmitted disease. It has also been contradicted by his lovers, including Warhol muse BillyBoy who has said they had sex to orgasm: “When he wasn’t being Andy Warhol and when you were just alone with him he was an incredibly generous and very kind person. What seduced me was the Andy Warhol who I saw alone. In fact when I was with him in public he kind of got on my nerves… I’d say: “You’re just obnoxious, I can’t bear you.”” Asked if Warhol was only a voyeur, Billy Name also denied it, saying: "He was the essence of sexuality. It permeated everything. Andy exuded it, along with his great artistic creativity… It brought a joy to the whole art world in New York. But his personality was so vulnerable that it became a defense to put up the blank front." Warhol’s lovers included John Giorno, Billy Name, Charles Lisanby, Jon Gould. His boyfriend of 12 years was Jed Johnson, whom he met in 1968, and who later achieved fame as an interior designer. The first works that Warhol submitted to a fine art gallery, homoerotic drawings of male nudes, were rejected for being too openly gay.
