Interesting article in today’s times on what has become of the East Village house where Bird lived. I remember hanging out there in the early eighties with some family friends who lived there for a time. Judy Rhodes was the landlord already, as well as a constant presence on the jazz and avant garde scene, but I don’t remember any actual birds around then. Nice to hear that the place has been preserved and not only. It has become–what else?–an aviary.
