Hudson Park Library is one of the 67 New York City libraries funded by industrialist Andrew Carnegie. John Flood is the librarian.
“I started to investigate all the writers I could find who lived in the West Village, writers as diverse as Edward Albee, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Edith Wharton. And James Baldwin. I collected their addresses, and I write something about each of them on their birthdays. Lorraine Hansberry who wrote A Raisin in the Sun, is next up.
