If you walk around our office, you’ll find that most
of the reporters, editors, and sales people keep a copy
of The Villager Community Handbook within grab-
bing distance. They find it to be a vital resource guide
that they use frequently.
But of course we do not publish the handbook for
ourselves. It is our hope that you, as a member of the
Greenwich Village community — West Village, East
Village and Lower East Side — will also see it as an
invaluable resource. It is full of essential information
that can enable residents to take control of their lives,
whether it is finding the address of a public official,
identifying an organization that needs your help, or
finding an organization that can help you. Our exten-
sive listings include public officials and agencies, com-
munity boards, religious institutions, political organi-
zations and educational and youth organizations. We
also include advertisements from your local stores and
businesses, the type of businesses and organizations
that make a neighborhood vital and livable.
In this year’s handbook, we feature New York’s
Top 20 Poets, by Stephen Wolf. These Poets not only
shaped New York for the generations, their voices
resonated around the world and impacted our entire
nation. Their home was Lower Manhattan, where this
great city was born. And like poetry Lower Manhattan
is an incredible reflection of freedom loving people.
This handbook is for you, our readers, and we
hope it will be a useful resource and problem solver
for you. Please let us know what you think of it. If for
some reason we have neglected to list your organiza-
tion, we’re happy to add it to our next edition.

Unbeknownst to some lifetime New Yorkers,
there is actually a formula to estimate the
numbered cross street to many Manhattan
addresses from the avenue addresses. In
order to estimate the street, take the address
number, cancel the last digit, divide by two
and then add or subtract the avenue’s magic
number which is listed below.

For example 523 Third Ave.: Cancel the “3”
to get 52, then divide by two to get 26, then
add the magic number for Third Ave., ten, to
get 36. So 523 Third Ave. is near 36th St.

As if parking in this city wasn’t compli-
cated enough, throughout the year the rules
change for holidays and religious obser-
vances, some well-known, some obscure.
The following is a list of days the Alternate-
Side Parking Rules are suspended.
The astericked entries mark major legal hol-
idays, when stopping, standing and parking
are permitted in legal spaces. This does
not apply to areas where the rules are in
effect seven days a week, i.e. “No Standing
Anytime” or “No parking 7am to 10am
including Sunday.”

By Stephen Wolf
T
he top twenty of anything is subjective unless
numbers are determinates: the best batting
averages or tallest buildings. But irrefutable
facts aside, each of us with a love and some knowledge
of poetry will conceive a list bearing many of these
same poets listed here; the hard part is listing only
twenty. For nowhere in New York has poetry flourished
the way it has downtown, in part because that is where
the city began nearly four centuries ago, but more
significantly because poets have always sought haven
and camaraderie, cafes and bookshops in the streets
below Fourteenth, east side and west side, often settling
in those neighborhoods because other poets have settled
there before them. Each poet listed here has had a distinct
and intimate relationship with the city –sometimes with
love, sometimes hate, and occasionally with both in the
same poem, a tradition that continues to this day, and
they have left enduring imprints on the city by writing
of the city’s enduring imprint left on them.
This list was created by Stephen Wolf, editor of I Speak
of the City: Poems of New York (Columbia University Press),
the most extensive collection of poems ever assembled about
New York City. Beginning with an early piece when the city
was called New Amsterdam and continuing through poems
written after 9/11, the collection features poets from more than
a dozen countries and captures New York’s defining moments
and infinite transformations: Henry Hudson’s arrival, Peter
Stuyvesant’s prejudice, the city’s astonishing growth and
gentrification, the thrills of a skyscraper’s observation deck,
the privations of teeming tenements, the immigrant experience
at Ellis Island, decay, fear, unexpected kindness on a subway
ride, on sidewalks, in taxis, and poems about Central Park.
Whether writing sonnets, epics, experimental or imagistic
verse, each of these poets has been inspired by the marvels and
madness, humor and heartbreak of New York.

E
xpelled from Columbia University
for writing an obscenity on the misty
window of his dorm room, Allen
Ginsberg hung out for years in Greenwich
Village bars before moving to the East
Village where “you’d walk around hearing
‘Rhapsody in Blue’ in your head.” His
first East Village apartment at 206 E. 7th
Street provided haven for poets, writers,
renegades, and social outcasts as well as
the setting for the iconic photo of Kerouac
smoking a cigarette on the fire escape.
Ginsberg’s epic poem Howl was as powerful
to his generation when it appeared in 1956
as Eliot’s The Waste Land had been to the
generation before. A political activist, social
guru, and East Village notable, inspired by
his mentor and model Walt Whitman, as
well as the “precise real images” of William
Carlos Williams but infused with jazz and
“spontaneous bop prosody,” Ginsberg
also lived on East 2nd Street, East 10th,
and finally purchased his own apartment
in a building belonging to Larry Rivers
on East 13th Street and First Avenue.
“Thinking Om Ah Hum/ didn’t stop
em…” Ginsberg wrote in his frightening
and funny “Mugging,” he was happy to see
“my shoulder bag with 10,000 dollars/ full
of poetry left on the broken floor.”

Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950)
S
ettling in Greenwich Village in 1917 after
graduating from Vassar, Edna St. Vincent
Millay was the quintessential new woman –bold,
audacious, sexually liberated and often preferring to be
called Vincent (her middle name chosen by her father
to honor the Greenwich Village hospital that saved his
brother’s life). She lived poor but happy at 139 Waverly
Place, then 25 Charleton Street, and finally 75 ½
Bedford Street. She acted, directed, and wrote for the
Provincetown Players, and her poem “First Fig” (“my
candle burns at both ends, it will not last the night;/
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—/ It gives a lovely
light!”) became the motto of her restless generation.
Often written in traditional forms despite her own
unconventional life-style, her poems expressed sexual
pleasure and erotic delight (“What lips my lips have
kissed and where and why I have forgot…”), and in 1923
she was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for
Poetry. “How sweet the sound in the city an hour before
sunrise,” she wrote in “English Sparrows (Washington
Square)”,/ “When the park is empty and grey and the
light clear and so lovely…”

12 COMMUNITY HANDBOOK 2009
Ted Berrigan (1934-1983)
M
oving to the East Village
in 1960 and a central
figure in the second
generation of New York School
poets, Ted Berrigan used specific
time and place in his poetry,
recalling the work of Frank O’Hara
though he himself became a model
for young poets who followed him.
A city walker and generous spirit,
he taught poetry workshops at the
free University of NY as well as St.
Mark’s Arts and Poetry Project,
ran readings and workshops at
Le Metro Café, wrote reviews for
ArtNews, edited “C” Magazine,
and remained much-loved in the
neighborhood. His Sonnets (1964)
is still one of the freshest and most
inspired collections, offering new
angles and takes on the classic
form. He lived at 101 St. Mark’s
until his untimely death in 1983
and, in the words of his wife Alice
Notley, “famously believed that
being a poet was a 24-hour-a-day
job — you did it in your sleep too,
in your dreams when you gave into
sleep. It was full-time also in the
sense that it was worthy of all one’s
attention, and a poet shouldn’t
have to have another job as well.”

16 COMMUNITY HANDBOOK 2008
E. E. Cummings (1894-1962)
R
esiding at 21 East 15th before
serving in France as an ambulance
driver during The First World
War (his experiences as a prisoner told
in his novel The Enormous Room), E. E.
Cummings remained in Paris after the war
as part of the expatriates misnamed ‘the
Lost Generation’ by Gertrude Stein. Upon
returning to the city he settled in Greenwich
Village, moving in 1923 to his much-loved
4 Patchin Place off W. 10th Street and
Sixth Avenue. One of the 20th Century’s
most innovative and experimental poets
yet capable of reaching many readers, his
work is romantic, satiric, angry, bawdy,
and written in his characteristic style of
oddities of punctuation, capitalization, and
inventiveness with typography and language.
While not considered a poet writing of
New York, the city appears throughout his
work in juxtaposed and dream-like ways:
“at the ferocious phenomenon of 5 o’clock
i find myself gently decompos-/ ing in the
mouth of New York… In the soft midst
of the tongue sits the Woolworth building
a serene/ pastille-shaped insipid kinesis
or frail swooping lozenge…” In another
poem, while lying in his bed, “my eyes are
fond of the east side/ as i lie asleep my eyes
go into Allen street the dark/ long cool
tunnel of raving colour….”

Galway Kinnell (b.1927)
A
fter graduating from
Princeton in 1948 Galway
Kinnell served in the U.S.
Navy, then traveled extensively
through Europe and the Middle
East, publishing his first collection
of poems What Kingdom It Was in
1960. During the turbulent decade
that followed he helped register
Southern blacks, and his book-
length poem The Book of Nightmares
(1971) is a powerful condemnation
of the Vietnam War. His 1980
Selected Poems won both the Pulitzer
Prize and the National Book Award,
and his harrowing, haunting “When
the Towers Fell” (“Some died while
calling home to say they were O.K./
Some died after over an hour spent
learning they would die”) appeared
in the New Yorker, September 16,
2002. For a few years in the late
1950s, Kinnell lived on the Lower
East Side, the setting for his epic
masterpiece “The Avenue Bearing
the Initial of Christ into the New
World,” a monumental mosaic of
more than 600 lines of sights and
sounds, people and places around
Avenue C, one of the oldest,
most diverse, often troubled, and
anachronistic neighborhoods in
Manhattan: “From the Station
House/ under demolishment on
Houston/ to the Power Station
on 14th,/ Jews, Negroes, Puerto
Ricans/ Walk in the spring
sunlight.”

for the medicine to taste like medicine. That’s why
pharmacies offer FLAVORx. So now you can have
flavoring added right to your child’s prescription or
over-the-counter liquid medicine. While we know

you child can choose from. Rest assured, FLAVORx
won’t change the effectiveness of the medication,
just make it taste better.

John Ashbery (b. 1927)
N
o American poet has received more
accolades, won as many awards,
has a more faithful (though at times
uncomprehending) readership, or been a
greater influence in the past fifty years over
American poetry than John Ashbery. Born in
Rochester, New York, in 1927 and raised on
a farm, he did his senior thesis at Harvard on
W.H. Auden, and his Some Trees – “the most
beautiful first book to appear in America,”
wrote Frank O’Hara— won the Yale Younger
Poets Prize of 1956. In 1975 Self-Portrait in a
Convex Mirror won the National Book Award, the
National Book Critics Award, and the Pulitzer
Prize for poetry. The first English-speaking poet
to win the coveted Grand Prix de Biennales
Internationales de Poésie (Brussels), Poet
Laureate of New York from 2001-2003, former
Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets
and currently a professor of languages and
literature at Bard College, Ashbery wrote art
criticism for years for the New York Herald Tribune,
New York, Newsweek, and Art News, and is the only
surviving member of the self-effacing New York
School of Poets. His most recent collection, A
Worldly Country, appeared in 2007. In his poem
“The Wrong Kind of Insurance,” he wrote, “In
New York/…Spring is leafy and cold, autumn
pale and dry./ And changes build up/ Forever,
like birds released into the light/ Of an August
sky, falling away forever/ To define the handful
of things we know for sure,/ Followed by
musical evenings.”

James Schuyler (1923-1991)
P
erhaps the most lyrical but least
known of the New York School
of poets, James Schuyler was
born in Chicago and didn’t arrive
in New York until the late 1940s
even though he apparently was a
descendant of the renowned Schuyler
family when the city was still New
Amsterdam. While he began writing
poetry relatively late in his life, he
was influenced by both the epic and
personal aspects of Whitman and
W.H. Auden whom he befriended and
became his typist. He was strongly
inspired by the visions and techniques
of the painters of his day (concerning
the city in the late 1950s and early
1960s he wrote, “In New York the art
world is a painters’ world; writers and
musicians are in the boat, but they
don’t steer”), and cultivated a deep
friendship with Fairfield Porter to
whom Schuyler’s first poetry collection
Freely Espousing was dedicated. For a
decade he wrote criticism for Art News,
served as a curator at the Museum of
Modern Art, won the Pulitzer Prize
for poetry in1981 for Morning of the
Poem, and lived in room 625 at the
Chelsea Hotel from 1979 until his
death in 1991. “What I really loved
today, / Was New York, its streets
and/ men selling flowers and hot dogs
on them.”

Marianne Moore (1887-1972)
I
n 1918 Marianne Moore took a Greenwich Village apartment
at 14 St. Luke’s Place and from 1921 until 1925 worked at the
Hudson Park branch of the New York Public Library right across
the street. Although she would later move to Brooklyn and have a
special fondness for the Brooklyn Dodgers (in 1968 she threw out the
first ball on opening day at Yankee Stadium), she became one of the
central poets in Greenwich Village after World War I, publishing in
and later editing Dial, perhaps the most important journal of the arts
in its day, its office at 152 West 13th Street. Her Collected Poems (1951)
won the Pulitzer Prize, and The Poems of Marianne Moore was edited
by Greenwich Village’s treasured poet and teacher Grace Schulman.
When crossing into Manhattan from Brooklyn Moore always took the
Manhattan Bridge so as to get a better view of the Brooklyn Bridge,
“synonymous with endurance,” she wrote, “united by stress….”

Philip Freneau (1752-1832)
R
eferred to in his day as
the “father of American
poetry” and certainly one
of New York’s earliest important
writers, Philip Freneau was born on
Frankfort Street in 1752 when New
York was still an English colony.
The poet fought in the American
Revolutionary War but was captured
by the British in 1780 and for six brutal
weeks was a prisoner on the prison
ship Scorpion –later the subject of
his poem “The British Prison-Ship.”
His two volume collection Poems
Written and Published During the
American Revolution earned him
the label as “Poet of the American
Revolution,” and his poem “On the
City Encroachment on the Hudson
River 1800” denounced New York
City’s unending destruction of this
beautiful island, a concern that
persists to this day: “Where Hudson,
once in all his pride/ In surges burst
upon the shore/ They plant amidst
his flowing tide/ Moles to defy his
loudest roar.” He died while lost in a
snowstorm after leaving a bar.

Jack Kerouac (1922-1969)
K
nown less for his poetry than
his novels On the Road (first
draft written at 149 W. 20th
Street) and The Subterraneans (set in San
Francisco but describing the jazz clubs
of New York and the ‘Paradise Alley’
neighborhood of East 11th Street),
Jack Kerouac influenced a generation
as much by his life-style as he did with
his writing. Born in Massachusetts
and attending Columbia on a football
scholarship where he befriended Allen
Ginsberg and William Burroughs,
Kerouac along with poet John Clellon
Holmes was instrumental in the
emergence of the Beat Generation
which gave a voice and identity to the
outcasts, disaffected, independent, and
self-reliant of his age. As popular to his
generation as Scott Fitzgerald was to the
youth of the 1920s, Kerouac also wrote
poetry, his Mexico City Blues (published in
1959) and his posthumous Scattered Poems
demonstrating a variety of styles from
the freest of free verse to the structured
sonnets and haikus but infused with
what Ginsberg called a “spontaneous
bop” inspired by jazz. In his poem
“Macdougal Street Blues,” Kerouac
writes of “The goofy foolish/ human
parade/ Passing on Sunday/ art streets/
Of Greenwich Village…”

Herman Melville (1819-1891)
A
fter his popularity
as a writer of
sea adventures
collapsed with the 1850
publication of Moby Dick
–the great American novel
of the romantic age—
Herman Melville soon
took to writing poetry.
His Civil War collection
Battle Pieces and Aspects of
the War is now ranked with
Whitman’s Drum Taps as the
greatest poetry from what
is still America’s bloodiest
conflict. His poem “The
House-Top” is a roof-top
view of the most horrific
urban riot in American
history: the three July days
in Manhattan following
the first drawing of the
Conscription Act of 1863
which drove into the streets
thousands of angry men,
mostly Irish and unable
to pay the $300 needed to
pay their way out of it. At
first attacking draft offices,
abolitionist newspapers,
Republicans, any Lincoln
supporters, anyone
appearing able to pay $300,
the police and local militia
trying to restore order, the
mob then turned towards
the black citizens of New
York upon which was
unleashed brutality never
seen in the city. “Yonder…/
Balefully glares red Arsen
–there— and there./ The
town is taken by rats.”
Born at 6 Pearl Street and
moving later to Greenwich
Village, Melville for a while
frequented the literary salon
of Anne Charlotte Lynch
at 116 Waverly Place. Her
other guests often included
William Cullen Bryant,
Edgar Allen Poe, and Fitz-
Greene Halleck, known
as the “Knickerbocker
Poet” and once quite
fashionable then, a statue
of him to this day shaded
by a row of American
Elms along Literary Mall
in Central Park. But
after the deterioration
of his literary career and
then both his physical
and, occasionally, mental
health, Melville spent most
of his remaining years
obscurely as a deputy
inspector of customs for
New York City. Often his
work took him to the pier
along Gansevoort Street
where he continually felt
humiliated that he scuttled
along the street named for
the Revolutionary War hero
of his mother’s father.

A
lthough born in Boston, Edgar Allan Poe made
a permanent place— or rather several— for
himself in our city. He moved here with his young
bride (and cousin) Virginia Clemm in 1844, residing first
at 130 Greenwich Street, then a dismal back room at 195
East Broadway the next year. In time the couple moved
to 85 Amity (now W. 3rd Street) where Poe began “The
Cask of Amontillado” and published “The Raven.” Apart
from inventing the detective story, writing immortal tales
of horror and the supernatural, and a renowned poet
whose work influenced Stéphane Mallarmé and Charles
Baudelaire, Poe worked at the New York Evening Mirror and
edited the Broadway Journal. Eventually Virginia’s fragile
condition (she was suffering from tuberculosis) led Poe
to move them to the Brennan Farm near Broadway and
West 84th Street, then finally the Fordham cottage in the
Bronx. Although having never written a poem about New
York, he declared in Doings of Gotham that “roaming far
and wide over this island of Mannahatta...to me it conveys
the sublime.”

T
wenty-six year old Frank
O’Hara hit Manhattan in
the early 1950s when the
city reached creative heights never
seen before. Witty, charming, self-
effacing, he walked Midtown during
his lunch break as curator at the
Museum of Modern Art (he began
there selling postcards) recording
action and feeling in his Lunch
Poems (1965), some of the most
joyous bursts of love ever written
to the city. He provided a sort of
social and intellectual link between
the painters of his time –Willem
de Kooning, Jackson Pollack,
Franz Kline, Larry Rivers among
many- and poets John Ashbery,
James Schuyler, Kenneth Koch,
and others who part-mockingly
referred to themselves as the New
York School of Poets, all the while
still befriending and admiring the
Beats. O’Hara lived on University
Place, 441 East Ninth (“St. Bridget’s
steeple leaning a little to the left”),
and Broadway across from Grace
Church, and only his poetry shares
the esplanade at the World Financial
Center with Walt Whitman, whom
O’Hara referred to as “my great
predecessor.” Developing a new
type of diary-like, ‘personal’ poem
that influenced his contemporaries
and poets to follow, he writes in one
of many love poems to New York,
“oh god it’s wonderful / to get out
of bed/ and drink too much coffee/
and smoke too many cigarettes /
and love you so much.”
Frank O’Hara (1926-1966)

Edward Field (b. 1924)
N
ew York is “a people paradise,” wrote Brooklyn-born Edward
Field, where “the big event here/ is the streets, which are full of
love.” Since the 1963 publication of Stand Up, Friend, With Me, the
poet has also written novels (The Villagers: A Novel of Greenwich Village), edited
the poetry anthology A Geography of Poets, written a memoir of Greenwich
Village bohemia (The Man Who Would Marry Susan Sontag), and most recently
After the Fall, a collection of both old and new poems including the haunting,
epic title-piece of more than 200 lines telling of our city’s great loss. Infused
with strong political fire as well as the broad concerns of the common
man, his work is topical and timeless, particular and universal, written in a
natural, accessible voice filled with anger, heart-ache, humor, and humanity.
In the tender, wise, self-effacing poem “The Last Bohemians,” he writes,
“Leftovers from the old Village, we spot each other/ drifting through the
ghostly/ high-rental picturesque streets, ears echoing/ with typewriters
clacking and scales and arpeggios/ heard no more…”

40 COMMUNITY HANDBOOK 2008
Miguel Piñero (1946-1988)
F
ew poets’ journeys
were more varied and
arduous than Miguel
Piñero’s. At five years old he
left Puerto Rico for New York,
and twenty years later, while
serving a stretch in Sing-Sing
for second-degree armed
robbery, he wrote Short
Eyes, a play about prison life
eventually nominated for six
Tony Awards and the winner
of both an Obie and the New
York Drama Critics Circle
Award. Upon his release
Piñero returned to the Lower
East Side and with other
writers and performance
artists co-founded the
Nuyrican Café on East 3rd
Street between B and C,
still one of the major stages
for contemporary poetry in
New York. His collection
La Bodega Sold Dreams was
part of the force creating
a new poetry coming from
the troubled, vibrant New
York streets during some
of the city’s darkest years.
Miguel struggled with drugs
and alcohol much of his life
and was only forty when he
died in 1988, but his friends
saw to it that the request he
makes in “A Lower East Side
Poem” was honored: “so
please when I die .../don’t
take me far away/ keep me
near by/ take my ashes and
scatter them thru out/ the
Lower East Side ...”

Richard Howard (b.1929)
“N
ot hell but a street,” Richard Howard wrote
in his poem “209 Canal.” “not/ Death
but a fruit-stand, not/ Devils just hungry
devils/ Simply standing around the stoops, the stoops.”
Born in Cleveland in 1929, winner of the 1970 Pulitzer
Prize for poetry for Untitled Subjects, Poet Laureate of New
York State from 1994-1996, former Chancellor of The
Academy of American Poets, Howard was instrumental
in bringing French poetry to English-speaking readers:
his 1982 translation of Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du
Mal won an American Book Award. His Alone with America:
Essays on the Art of Poetry in the United States Since 1950 is a
critical analysis of 41 American poets originally published
in 1969 and reissued in 1980. A former editor for Paris
Review and teaching at Columbia University, Richard
Howard in his poem “The Old Men Playing Boccie
on Leroy Street” writes that “The old men play until I
think/ Their laughter is the bravest sport/ I ever listened
to in nature.”

CELEBRATING 28 YEARS, Buckle My Shoe Nursery
School began in 1981with a developmental approach
in early childhood. Our original small group, seven
two-year olds (to be exact) has grown into two
pre-schools comprising of 200 children. The
Reggio Emilia philosophy embraces our view
of young children and has become the current
educational model that meets the “whole child.”
The Reggio approach focuses on the “whole child”
through creative exploration and play, allowing
the child's social, cognitive and reflective abilities
to develop through art. Buckle My Shoe Nursery
School has an atelier (art studio) along with a full
time atelierista (art director) to guide the exploration
of materials with children, parents and teachers.
This art curriculum helps weave relationships
with friends, family and community in preparation
for future life experiences.
The premise “children learn by doing”, is teaching
our young children to care for their planet by
recycling and reusing various resources.
The Reggio Emilia philosophy helps Buckle
My Shoe Nursery School use its community as a
resource tool to explore various ideas and develop a
liaison between the children and their environment.
We are fortunate to be in one of the most
resourceful and culturally diverse cities in the
world.
Our children can express themselves and their
experiences through language and art. Indeed, they
do speak many languages and their art is a critical
means of self-expression.

W.H. Auden (1907-1973)
T
he poetry of English-born W.H. Auden is
more closely associated with academia and the
intellectuals of the West Side than with the Beats
he lived among while residing quietly for twenty years at
77 St. Mark’s Place from 1953 until 1972. A parishioner
at St. Mark’s Church, editor, translator, anthologist, writer
of verse plays, theological treatises, travel memoirs, and
literary criticism (The Dyer’s Hand collected his lectures
given while Professor of Poetry at Oxford), Auden
influenced a generation of poets with his ironic tone,
measured stanzas, and, some believed, as the successor
of T.S. Eliot. His influence was so pervasive that some
Beat poets wrote as a reaction to his writing style. His
often anthologized “September 1, 1939,” set in New York
City on the day Hitler invaded Poland, circulated widely
and was frequently broadcasted after the terrorist attacks
on 9/11: “Waves of anger and fear/ Circulate over the
bright/ And darkened lands…/ The unmentionable
odour of death/ Offends the September night.”

Moishe Leib Halpern (1886-1932)
Harvey Shapiro (b. 1924)
T
he most original and
forceful of the treasured
though neglected Yiddish
poets who settled into the Lower
East Side with hopes that the
New World was paradise, Moishe
Leib Halpern arrived in New
York in 1908, a twenty-two year
old escaping Austro-Hungarian
rule. A waiter, sign painter, pants
presser, and accomplished painter,
he soon associated with the group
of Yiddish poets who referred
to themselves as Di Yunge (The
Young). His first book In New York
(1919) tells in first-person narrative
the disillusionment and loss of
hope of the immigrant Jew; “O
huge city, such grim strangeness/
Wraps you in the darkness here,”
and in a tragic-comic poem to
his son he writes that the boy can
“be a loan shark, a bagel lifter,”
even commit “murder, set fires,”
but if he chooses to be a poet “I’ll
chop up…all the ties that bind us
now.”
“W
e thought we were
in Paris,” Harvey
Shapiro said about
life in Greenwich Village during
the 1950s. “You never wanted to go
above Fourteenth Street.” Editor of
the anthology Poets of World War II,
former editor of The New York Times
Book Review and The New York Times
Magazine, author of the recently
released The Sights Along the Harbor:
New and Collected Poems, Shapiro
writes poetry that, in his own words,
“comes from the city.” Though he
was born in Chicago, many of his
poems are alive with New York and
especially a New York downtown;
there are poems about the marvelous
delicatessen ‘Russ and Daughters’ on
East Houston, the Jefferson Market,
the House of Detention on Tenth
Street, and poems with the titles
“Lower East Side” as well “Bronx
Elegy” and “Brooklyn Snaps”
and “Brooklyn Heights.” Having
published his first collection, The Eye,
in 1953 and publishing still today,
Shapiro is a living treasure whose
voice, as in his poem “Through the
Boroughs, “will carry…down/ The
block, across the bridge,/ Through
the boroughs where people I love/
Can hear my voice, saying to them/
Through the music that their lives/
Are speaking to them now, as mine
to me.”

Photo by George C. Cox
Walt Whitman
Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
N
o poet’s name is more
intimately associated
with New York
–perhaps all of America— than
Walt Whitman, who moved from
Brooklyn to Manhattan in 1841,
living in various boarding houses
including one at 12 Centre
Street. Printer, newsman, editor,
medical assistant during the
Civil War, and father of modern
poetry, Whitman observed with
delight and wonder as New York
grew from a harbor town of
50,000 to become, when he died
in 1892, the largest city in the
world, a symbol of the Industrial
Age, home to more than 2.5
million people, with another
million before the decade was
out. He loved walking the street
of lower Broadway where he
observed “endless humanity
in all phases,” and his radical,
innovative, influential Leaves of
Grass (1855) was composed “out
of my life in Brooklyn and New
York,” He remains the great
influence on other poets writing
of New York and a model for
poets today, and his bronzed,
majestic words emblazoned upon
a low fence along the esplanade
at the World Financial Center
–a poem composed when the
city foresaw the epic role in the
world it would soon hold—are
as timeless now as when written
nearly a century and a half ago:
“City of the World! (for all races
are here. All the lands of the
earth make contributions here;)
City of the Sea! city of wharves
and stores! city of tall facades
of marble and iron! Proud and
passionate city! mettlesome,
mad, extravagant city!”
