The block I lived on thirty years ago has been named the best block in New York by Time Out. (Unless I am mistaken, our old house is pictured, furthest on the left—25 South Portland.) After living in this house and on this block—with plane treees that didn't move when it rained; a long, curved, dimpled bannister; stray cats who ate gerbils; and a girl who called me a punk at a street fair when I dressed, with full facial make-up, as Ace Frehley—we moved to another house in Fort Greene at 232 Carlton Street, located between DeKalb and Willoughby. In 1981, we moved to the Eagle Warehouse, on the edge of Brooklyn Heights. In 1990, I moved to Manhattan.
