The Day | On Poets and Artists

AirSarah Tung

Good morning, East Village.

We in the neighborhood will always claim the poet Allen Ginsberg, a longtime resident of East 12th Street, as one of our own, despite his New Jersey roots. Ephemeral New York has a post about Gregory Corso, another Beat Generation writer, who was reared a bit west of us over on Bleecker Street and is noteworthy for his extensive ties to the Village.

EVGrieve posts a report that the actress Cynthia Nixon is buying a house on East Sixth Street that Andy Warhol once called home.

And, following Tuesday’s election, Gothamist posted an item about a new complaint from city voters.
