Richard Yates, born February 3, 1926, lived at 27 Seventh Avenue South, at the corner of Bedford Street in New York City, just steps from Hudson Park Library.

Yates is best known for Revolutionary Road, a finalist for the National Book Award in 1962. In 2005, Revolutionary Road was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels published between then and 1923, when the magazine was founded.
