description/

Henry Miller (author of the notoriously banned books Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn) moved into 91 Remsen Street with his second wife, June, in 1924. In Plexus, book two of the fictionalized account of his early life, he describes searching for and finding the apartment and his worries about paying the rent: “It was a stunning place she had to rent, but far beyond our means… I was convinced that if we took it, we’d be sunk.” Henry and June were evicted in 1925 for just that very reason.
