James Fenimore Cooper was a neighbor at 6 St Marks 1833-1940 before he moved to Cooperstown.


I just discovered your blog researching the origin of an old Velvet Underground album I purchased. (There's a sticker on the cover from the Music Box with an area code of 212 ). Not sure if that's the same one mention in your blog post but I got caught up in reading your other posts. Love the old pics of 4 St. Marks Place in this one... Bummed to just have Google Mapped it to see the same sad story of bland gentrification!
