There’s an “exciting new listing!” on Air BnB for Jean-Michel Basquiat’s former studio. But you probably won’t be able to stay there — because it costs $650 a night.

Like most things in SoHo since Basquiat’s untimely death in 1988, the artist’s loft has been significantly renovated. Just check out the photos.

For some context, here’s video of Basquiat in his loft back in the ’80s (interview starts around 1:04).
