Kerouac Alley

That may be so, but until this year, Kerouac Alley was no place for the literati, cultural anthropologists, or anybody else. It was "pretty seedy,'' said Gerald Nicosia, who wrote a biography of Kerouac and lives in North Beach. "It was a place for fish trucks and garbage,'' said Ferlinghetti. "It smelled pretty bad on a warm day.''
