Allen Ginsberg's Apartment Finally Occupied

"Jane Kwett, a marketer for Yelp who prefers Kerouac to Ginsberg, is the new tenant in Allen Ginsberg's old apartment. After the landlord raised the rent in her West Village residence, she found the Ginsberg apartment online and thought it looked like a great deal for $1,700 a month."

I have seen the best minds of my generation (who were starving and hysterical) give 4 stars to restaurants that were clearly no more than two stars.

dragging themselves through the streets at 11 pm (because that's when the Starbucks closes on weekdays) looking for angry chai latte.

fedoraheaded hipsters burning for the ancient $G connection to the starry foursquare in the machinery of social media.

and so on…

That's not writing; that's typing.

Arthur Russel used to live in that building too, I think his boyfriend still does.

I hope to be described as "a commenter for The Awl" in a story someday.

I like to type things on the internet.

I'd like to bid on Hunter Thompson's Vespa.

Yeah, the charnel ground. $1,700 means the neighborhood's coming back down, I guess?

You don't know what I'm all about. Like [REDACTED] and reading Kerouac.
