St Marks Baths Matchbook


About this product

Vintage matchbook from New St. Marks Baths featuring artwork by Boris Vallejo circa 1978. This was a gay bathhouse in the East Village of Manhattan from 1979 to 1985 (originally opened as a Turkish bath house in 1913). It claimed to be the largest gay bath house in the world. It was an early target of focus during the early 1980s AIDS epidemic and shut down by the New York City Department of Health in 1985. This matchbook has never been used and is in perfect shape.
