    Well, Woodlawn, of course. But did you know that Elizabeth Cady Stanton lived in my hometown for 20 years? Just down the street and around the corner in – as my mother first called it when she walked me to school that first time when I was six – the White House!

  5. Other notable neighbors for me when the time comes at Woodlawn include Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Celia Cruz, FW Woolworth, Fiorello H LaGuardia, Isidor Straus (Ida’s body was never recovered) and scoundrel/financier/philanthropist Jay Gould
