Genius Row: Frank Norris in the Village
So many remarkable writers lived in New York City at 61 Washington Square South and the adjoining homes that the structures became known as Genius Row. Frank Norris, a writer mostly associated with San Francisco, lived here for a time (as did Willa Cather, O. Henry, and Stephen Crane). His birthday is March 5.
Genius Row was demolished in the 1940s.
