|From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
|An apartment at 299 Riverside Drive, New York 25 NY. Dick Ellington, Art Saha, Pat Werner, Bill Donaho, and from one to one dozen others at various times. They finally got evicted for playing jazz and all sorts of crazy carryings on like that there, a short time after the NYCon II.
