Around Columbia University
Hamilton Hall. When Allen Ginsberg lived in Hamilton Halls, Kerouac visited him one night and stayed overnight. That fact and a ‘Fuck The Jews’ scribbled in dirt on Ginsberg’s window lead to his being suspended from Columbia. Kerouac’s professor Mark Van Doren also had an office in this building.
St. Paul’s Chapel. Kerouac mentions walking past St. Paul’s Chapel in Vanity of Dulouz.
