Celebrating Irish-American Heritage Month Writer, poet, art critic, Frank O’ Hara (1926-1966) lived in New York City from 1951 until his tragic death on Fire Island in 1966. During the most prolific period of his life, O’Hara roomed with his friend/lover Joe LeSeur in a series of Village apartments while he worked at MoMA and wrote poetry on his lunch hour. He refined his prolific talents on University Place above the Bagatelle, a popular lesbian bar favored by writer Audrey Lord, on East 9th Street near Ave A in the early days of what became known as the East Village and finally on lower Broadway in a big loft.

March is the anniversary of Frank O’Hara’s birth. Beat away the last bitter gasp of winter with urban planner/ arts manager Laurence Frommer on a whirlwind tour of Frank O’Hara’s Villages: East and West.
