190 Bowery, the graffiti-covered building that for years was an iconic holdout against Lower East Side gentrification, has been closed to the public since 1966. Now that developer Aby Rosen has purchased it from photographer Jay Maisel, however, changes are afoot (though the graffiti will not be removed) and the first is that it will open its doors to the public for the first time in nearly five decades, for an art show that Rosen, an avid art collector, is hosting along with Vito Schnabel on Saturday. If you've ever been curious to see what the inside of 190 Bowery looks like—and won't look like for much longer—here's your chance.
