Anya died of cancer very early on, so I never really got to know her well. However, when I moved into Needles Jones' loft on the Bowery in 1983, I discovered several boxes of her clothing and accessories tucked in a corner. Since Anya was about a size 2, I had absolutely no use for them. (If I knew then...) The loft had previously been the residence of a great many rock legends including Tuxedo Moon and contained many similar forgotten or "stored" items. And since neither Needles nor I felt it was a priority to pay the tiny rent on the space, all of those historic items were left behind upon eviction.
Hey Needles, what was the address of that loft? I remember that it was next door to the Salvation Army Shelter, and that we would run downstairs to get the free box lunches they gave out.
