...The street where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women
...The place where Laura Ingalls Wilder’s daughter Rose Wilder Lane lived in bohemian splendor as a “bachelor girl” ...The home of Edith Wharton where she lived with her mother at age 20
...From Wharton’s House of Mirth – the former Benedick men’s residence where Lawrence Selden, Lily Bart’s friend and confidant, lived
...The former home of Alice Walker and husband Mel Leventhal...
...Edna St. Vincent Millay’s house (the smallest house in NYC!), and the many places that she lent her “heroism”
...and much, much more!
