Patti Astor was known as the "Queen of the Downtown Scene" and was an underground film actress and culture maven in 1970s and 80s NYC.

She opened up The Fun Gallery at this location with partner Bill Stelling in 1981, and the art gallery featured some of the earliest exhibitions of graffiti and street art, including Taki 183, Keith Haring, Fab 5 Freddy, and Jean Michel Basquiat.
