Point of Interest Details

Before winning the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel Ironweed, author William Kennedy (b. 1928) spent a sabbatical year in 1982-1983 living at 105 Cascadilla Park Street and teaching writing at Cornell University. Using funds from a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, Kennedy then helped found the New York State Writers Institute at the University of Albany. Other notable works include Legs (1975) and Billy Phelan's Greatest Game (1978).
