Twenty-five years ago today, Jean-Michel Basquiat died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27 in New York. If you’re feeling overcome with Basquiat nostalgia because of this, you should maybe consider renting his former loft in Soho for a spell. The place — which pre-fame Madonna reportedly stayed in when Basquiat traveled — is currently listed on AirBnB, after all.

In addition to the one up top, here are a few other pics of the place…






And if you’ve never seen Downtown 81, a film based on Basquiat’s life that star’s Basquiat, it’s available in full on YouTube…

You can also watch Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child, a 2010 documentary on Basquiat, on YouTube as well…
