New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
20 Remsen Street: Norman Mailer's Onetime Writing Studio
Just a block south of W. H. Auden's and Thomas Wolfe's former residences, on the corner of Montague Terrace and Remsen Street, is the attic studio where Norman Mailer finished The Naked and the Dead. This address at 20 Remsen Street was Mailer's writing studio; he lived with his first wife, Beatrice, just across the street and down the block at 49 Remsen.
