I happened to be in Greenwich Village last night, and I thought to stop by Washington Place, just half a block from the beautiful Washington Square Park, where the fire described in Katharine Weber's Triangle took place. It's hard to imagine that there were ever sweatshop factories on this block, just steps from Henry James' elegant social swirl. I took a couple of pictures. Here's what the sidewalk looks like on Friday night, August 17, 2007, 96 years later.
But why end the LBC's Triangle week on such a despondent note as this? Instead, I'd like to thank everybody who participated in our celebration of this book, I'd like to thank Katharine for dropping by, and now let's swing over to Gwenda's place to find out Katharine Weber's favorite curse word and other interesting facts. Next up on LBC blog: Jamestown by Matthew Sharpe.
