Dream House

Words: Nathan Larson
Photography: MoMa, Dream House NYC

Two blocks below Canal Street in New York City, 275 Church street: a nondescript address above a mediocre Italian restaurant. Mount the wonky 3 flight walk-up + the seeker is met by a white door. Through the walls, one can discern the hum of some sort of massive turbine, a churning of subbass, and wafts of Nag Champa. You have arrived: this is LaMonte Young’s DREAM HOUSE, a hidden New York City treasure, priceless and unquestionably one-of-kind.
