Jack Kerouac met Dody Muller, an artist who at that time lived in this building at 81 2nd Ave in the East Village, at a party in October 1958. He wrote to Allen Ginsberg on October 28, 1958 ‘As for new chick (new, NEW, I had no old chick) Henri says because she Indian and French she knife me if I ever kid around other girl’ (Jack Kerouac Selected Letters 1957-1969).
