307 W 11th Street

Kerouac’s girlfriend in 1956/1957 Helen Weaver, author of ‘The Awakener’ lived here when he returned from Mexico with Allen Ginsberg and the Orlovsky brothers Peter and Lafcadio and all of them yelled at the 3rd floor window where she lived with a friend (see ‘Desolation Angels’).

  1. 1967/1957? I think it was around ’57.

    Her roommate was the one who knew Kerouac and Ginsberg first.
