Few places have survived the fast paced change of gentrification in New York City, specially in Manhattan. The Pyramid Club was one of those places that fought and survived for almost 4 decades. Located on 101 Avenue A, The Pyramid had been a gathering place for the East Village underground, punk, drag, and gay scene since its opening in 1979.

A long list of famous artists performed and partied at the Pyramid. Artist Keith Haring was a regular there, along with Andy Warhol and Debbie Harry. Drag performers like Lypsinka, Lady Bunny, and RuPaul performed there regularly. Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first New York City concerts there.
