The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center is easy to miss. Its a small, unassuming house, along a tree-lined residential street.

The atelier is impressive in the sense that, once taking off shoes and donning slippers, you can walk over the floor which has paint remnants from Pollock’s action paintings.

The house has a domestic feel to it, and is a bit of a time capsule: a valve amplifier connected to a record player… the jazz records… a rotary dial telephone.
