New York Studio
- Hello All,
The 'Vagabond's House Studio' in New York City..."In the shadow of
the Empire State Building"...was at 145 E. 40th Street. I obtained a
copy of Don's telephone directory listing from 1930, and that's what
was listed, along with the phone number: LEXington 1192.
Helen Temelkovski, a librarian at the New York City Public Library,
looked it up for me, and made a photocopy. The building address
doesn't exist any more, and Helen went to look...there's an office
building in it's place now.
This info cost me $60.00 (the previously referred to high cost of
research) but I feel it was worth it. One more little mystery solved.
Thanks....I knew it was on East 40th St., but could not remember the
number or find the slip of paper I wrote it on. So much for my
filing system! Nice to have the phone number as a "bonus."
Reminds me to double-check what city directories and old phone
directories are housed at the Seattle library. I know they used to
have them for the major cities, but perhaps no longer.
The address was just 4 blocks from my apartment on East 36th St., in
the Murray Hill district. Wish I'd known about it when I lived in
Manhattan in the mid-1960s. I probably passed by that location
hundreds of times on my way to work near the United Nations. Oh,
