On November 18, 1993, Nirvana taped an acoustic performance for the tv series MTV Unplugged at Sony Music Studios in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. The session differed from other Unplugged sessions in that there were a number of covers (six total) and the band did not play their hit songs.

Guitarist Pat Smear (The Germs, Foo Fighters) and cellist Lori Goldston had been touring with the band and performed during the session. The Meat Puppets sat in as guests for three of their songs covered by Nirvana.

The taping aired on MTV in December of 1993. Cobain was found dead in April of 1994, and the Unplugged session was released as an album in November of 1994.

The building was sold in November 2007 for $44 million, and it has since been razed and replaced by luxury condos.
