4 Patchin Place (from a site devoted to the writer John Cooper Powys. The writers John Cooper Powys, Llewelyn Powys, and Alyse Gregory--early Dial editor--lived for a time in the building.)Berenice Abbott photo (March 20, 1936) of Patchin Place [NYPL Digital Gallery] In the photo, we see two men sitting on the sidewalk steps in front of 4 Patchin. See also a second version at the NYPL Flickr stream. The man without a hat is most likely E. E. Cummings. A second Berenice Abbott photo shows Patchin Place with Jefferson Market Court in background (November 24, 1937).
