I was under the impression that he had an apt. in the building where Tower Records was, at E. 4th & B'way. I don't know for how long or when he vacated it.

I did, however, (literally) bump into him once, right near there. I was waiting for a chronically late girlfriend to meet me at 8th St & B'way. I was bored waiting & trying to amuse myself by looking in the windows of the Gap that used to be on that corner. Then I went to stomp off in a huff (she was VERY late) and I accidentally crashed right into the 2 people standing right next to me also looking in the store windows. It was Keith Richards & Patti Hansen. "Excuse me", I said.


It was probably 1978 or 79 when s guy in Washington Square Park pointed and 1 Fifth Avenue and said "the guy from the Rolling Stones lives there".


I heard the same about the Tower Records building. Saw him once in the 80’s chatting it up with another fellow in the doorway of the Cactus Cafe which was across Broadway on 3rd Street, I think. He had a German Shepard type dog with him at the time.

Yes, Keith has had a place at 14 E 4th St in Silk Building above old Tower Records. Even after he married Patti Hansen in 1983, he took care of Anita Pallenberg, never forgetting what she did for him. She lived at 14 E 4th St for a spell.


He lived in the Silk Building, at W 4th and Broadway. Apt was sold to the guy from E Trade.
