The house at 75 1/2 Bed­ford St. was once home to the Pulitzer Prize-win­ning poet Edna St. Vin­cent Mil­lay. At just 2.9 me­tres wide, it’s billed as “the nar­row­est house in New York.” The Cherry Lane The­atre at 38 Com­merce St. showed early works of play­wrights like Sam Shep­ard and Harold Pin­ter. The White Horse Tav­ern at 567 Hud­son has been a favourite bar for famed writ­ers from Jack Ker­ouac to Dy­lan Thomas, who is said to have downed his last shots there be­fore col­laps­ing. He died soon af­ter.
