St Luke's Place

St Luke's Place (46)

This is one of those small streets in which one has the overall feeling of being in New York. Its trees and its brown houses are straight off a postcard. Maybe that's why, several personalities have lived in these 15 houses and it has also served as a set for series and films.

For starters, we can tell you Mayor Jimmy Walker, elected in 1926, lived at number 6. You'll notice the streetlights are different. And these unique lamps were once used to illuminate the residence of the mayor, often called "the lamps of the mayor". Another personality who lived at number 14 was the writer and modernist poet Marianne Moore, best known for her 1951 collection of poems that won her several awards, including the Pulitzer.

In terms of the small screen, you might be familiar with the house at number 12. It was the residence of the protagonist family in "The Bill Cosby Show" although they pretended to live in Brooklyn. And with regard to references on the big screen, at No. 4 the film "Wait Until Dark" by Terence Young was shot here in 1967 starring actress Audrey Hepburn.

Before leaving this street, be sure to take some good pictures and stop by the garden located to the south. This space was formerly a cemetery and they say the last son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, known as the Dauphin of France, lies here.
