Address 56 Ludlow St New York, NY 10002, USA

In this 56 Ludlow St loft, the two artists Lou Reed and John Cale created one of the defining phenomena of American rock in the tumultuous and creative 1960s.

A red brick building, equipped with fire escapes like so many on the streets of New York, located a few blocks from the Bowery, the epicenter of punk. The building that once housed the Velvet Underground’s loft can quickly go unnoticed.

However, it is here that a phenomenon was born, on the fifth floor of this modest building. This is where two genius musicians spawned one of the most uncontrollable creatures on the East Coast music scene. They later moved further north in Manhattan to Andy Warhol’s house.
