"I looked up the address when I got home and freaking Marcel Duchamp lived there from 1942 until he died in 1968. How can that be? We had him that long, and so close (to where I live I mean)?? I had no idea. According to Wikipedia he died in France though, but did live in a Greenwich Village studio for many years. So maybe he didn't die here, but he lived here a long time and produced his last work of art here, years after everyone thought he had stopped making art."
