|The site, above, on MacDougall Street where the|
famed Figaro Cafe was once located.
...This Is Now
|Across the street, the equally|
well-known Cafe Borgia was located.
|The Riviera Cafe, at 6th Avenue and Christopher Street, hasn't changed. It was a favourite lunch spot, with friends and family.|
|At 6th Avenue and Christopher Street, the site of old Village Voice when Norman Mailer and other writers of that period wrote for it.|
|Just a few doors from Village Voice corner,|
the site of the old Lion's Head Restaurant.
|At corner of 8th Avenue and West Fourth Street, my old second-floor apartment at 340 West Fourth Street. There were about six of us, including|
at one time or another Mark Alpert,
Terry Bagg, and Joanne Putnoi.
|Below was the deli owned by Mr Camacho, who also owned the building. We'd pay rent to him, while buying cigarettes and other supplies. My brand was Gitanes bout filtres.|
|Incredibly, the deli sign is still there, though the deli area is a chi-chi gift shop.|
