Inside NYC's Sexy, Saucy, Scandalous All-Black Apartment

New, 1 comment

Former advertising exec and Make Love Not Porn founder Cindy Gallop bought a raw open-plan loft created when Manhattan's 23rd Street Y—yes, of Village People fame—was converted in 2005. She spent $1.5M on the space and another million for the renovation, turning 3,800 square feet of what was once a men's locker room into a black-walled bastion of erotica and art. The famous apartment, filled with amazing collections galore (jade sculptures depicting different sex positions, a large collection of taxidermy, a gold alligator lovingly termed the "Guccigator"), has served as the backdrop for numerous over-the-top parties, fashion shoots, the Notorious B.I.G video "Nasty Girl," and a Law & Order SVU episode (as a pimp's residence, naturally). Above, the charismatic Gallop gives our video team an insider tour of the for-sale flat, which she listed earlier this year for $5.995M. Step inside.
