On Saturday I read from Just Kids by Patti Smith as I walked from my apartment down to Myrtle Avenue all the way into Brooklyn. I was reading about Patti and Robert's life in their first apartment, the second floor of 160 Hall St., just off Myrtle. I found it and took a picture. In 1967 when they moved in, "the walls were smeared with blood and psychotic scribbling, the oven crammed with discarded syringes, and the refrigerator overrun with mold." The rent was $80/month. Today it's a $1 million townhouse, up for sale.
