Behold 57 Great Jones St. in small scale

Photo by Stacie Joy

Here's miniature/diorama artist Danny Cortes with one of his most recent works — an incredibly detailed 57 Great Jones St. ... including some of the tags and wheat pastes that adorned the façade. (No, there isn't a pink version of this!)

The address is currently Atelier Jolie ... Andy Warhol once owned the building between the Bowery and Lafayette ... and Jean-Michel Basquiat lived and worked here from 1983 to his death in 1988.

The building, erected in the 1860s, was also once the headquarters of gangster Paul Kelly. Read more about the space's history at Village Preservation.
