Kerouac Go Home: A New York City Travel Guide
June 22, 2017
According to New York literary lore, Jack Kerouac would regularly drink so much at the White Horse Tavern that the other regulars resorted to scrawling “Kerouac go home” or “Jack go home” above the men’s room urinals to try getting a message through to the drunken writer.
New York has always been a refuge for writers, artists, and other castoffs and wastrels. In this self-guided walking tour and literary pub crawl of New York’s writers’ bars, explore the places Hemingway, Kerouac, Cummings, O. Henry, and others called home, plus a few that still harbor wayward creatives today. “Kerouac Go Home” available soon on iBooks.
