Here’s a poor scan of the article in the New York Evening Post (29th August 1924) which sent Lovecraft to Greenwich Village to seek out the little lost alley… “just off Perry street, past Bleeker”. This setting appeared a year later as the “little black court off Perry Street”, in which the narrator emerges after his ordeal in the Lovecraft story “He” (written 11th August 1925).
