Jack on Long Island
Last year, the folks at poetryvlog.com went out to Northport, Long Island, where Jack Kerouac lived from 1958 through 1964. In a five-minute video, one of the two poetryvlog producers, George Harris, takes us on a tour of the town, which was in the midst of a community celebration at the time. A general holiday it was, into which honor due Jack fits as a small part in the municipal unconscious. (Ah, Long Island.) Here’s your link to the the video and here’s the link to the blog entry.
