Writers Slept Here

And Then Poured Words Onto The Page

Walking the streets and looking at the places where ten famous writers lived in Manhattan, New York City.

Two came here from Ohio. One each from Maine, New Jersey, Minnesota, Virginia, Mississippi, Missouri, and Massachusetts.
Only one was born here, in Harlem.

[Three died here. Two died in France. One in Italy.
One each in Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York State (Austerlitz), and the Gulf of Mexico.]
