This is an essential O’Hara primer/love letter:
"In his hands, mundane details of city life are magically amplified. In O’Hara’s New York there is a "Heaven on Earth Bldg / near the Williamsburg Bridge" where the young of America can repair with "pleasant strangers" after a night at the movies…In O’Hara’s New York, the “drunken and credulous” latrines on 14th Street are to be preferred to the ones on 53rd Street for furtive trysts; the neon sign at the Cedar Tavern is good luck to rub ; and there is a “Paradise Bar” on St Marks Place.”
- by Ryan Ruby, it’s a worthy read, for sure.

Remember that tasteful young man with the Foo Dogs we mentioned?  Look what else popped up in his eclectic parlor that plays right into our obsession.
The will be a lot more about Frank O’Hara. So much more.
(I’m proud of this picture I took!)
