Anais Nin

From her recollections:

...arrived in Manhattan early in the morning of Friday, March 17, and checked into the Albert Hotel, Thomas Wolfe’s old haunt, a hotel in 1967 still closely affiliated with New York University, full of students, all-night saxophones, bathroom down the hall....

From a letter to Nin from Henry Miller:

I think we must go south. And Spring is almost here – it will be marvelous now. Wonder even whether I should come back to N.Y. first. ... I’d probably need my valise & laundry at the Albert Hotel... – Henry
