Afternoon Interviews author Calvin Tomkins and Dodie Kazanjian.

Located just across the street from the brownstone where the artist once resided and where the interviews took place, the club's walls are lined with photos of Duchamp (he spent a large amount of time at the club), interspersed with other players including Bobby Fischer.

Indeed the historical location made Duchamp’s sentiment (quoted by Tompkins in the book), "Not all artists are chess players, but all chess players are artists," particularly poignant; throughout the night, several groups sat down to play, while the event was in full swing.
