Thirty years ago, in 1978, 77 White Street opened its doors as the Mudd Club, one of punk rock’s most celebrated incubators. Bands like Talking Heads, the B-52’s, and Blondie played here after Steve Mass, the proprietor, rented the space from artist Ross Bleckner and opened up shop. (At the time, opening a grungy punk club was a major counterculture statement—the prevailing culture being disco and Studio 54.) The third and fourth floors of the building were an art-exhibition space affiliated with the club; it was curated for a while by Keith Haring. Like many artifacts of the scruffy seventies, 77 White went condo years ago, and today, the seller of the spiffed-up third-floor apartment is Gossip Girl co–executive producer and writer Joshua Safran.
