Marcel Duchamp had his studio on fifth floor from October 1943 until his death in 1968. He produced his Boites, Boites-en-valise, and Etant Donnes (now in Philadelphia Museum of Art) here.

In 1943, Duchamp rented a studio on the top floor of a building located at 210 West 14th Street. While everyone believed that Duchamp had given up "art," he was secretly constructing the infamous Etant Donnes, a tableau of found objects from Duchamps walks around the neighborhood. The piece was not revealed until July of 1969, (several months after Duchamps death), when it was permanently installed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
