In its original state, this 19th century building was an elegant townhouse in the Federal style on one of the city’s most fashionable blocks. From 1833-1842, No. 4 was the residence of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, the widow of Alexander Hamilton, killed years earlier in a duel with Aaron Burr. For nearly 50 years, the lower floors were home to Trash & Vaudeville, the trendy rock ‘n’ roll fashion outlet to stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Nicholas Cage, Marie Presley and Cher.
From 1955 to 1967, 4 St. Marks Place held the names Tempo Playhouse, Key Theater and New Bowery Theater and had a significant theatrical history with Off-Off-Broadway. This venue became a hub for showcasing LGBT experimental theater, films, and music.
