Does anyone know whether Warhol's original Factory building at 231 East 47th is still there? I thought I might drop by during my visit later in the year.

It looks like the original Factory building is no more ...

Google MAP (http://www.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=231+e.+47th+st.,+new+york,+ny&ll=40.753812,-73.97136&spn=0.000882,0.002658&t=k&om=1) of 231 E. 47th address shows a large building covering numerous lots.

DOB Records show a Certificate of Occupancy (http://a810-cofo.nyc.gov/cofo/M/000/072000/M000072820.PDF) issued in 1972 for a new building that encompasses a number of lots including 231 E. 47th St (225 - 245 E. 47th St.).

That's too bad. I'll have to cross it off my list.

Thanks for the research. I didn't realise Google Maps was so good. As for the Certificate of Occupancy, that's an excellent resource you have there. And you found the entry so quickly. This is obviously an expert area of yours.
