Nabokov lived at Belleayre Apartments from 1954 to 1955.

If you continue on Stewart Avenue for another one-quarter mile you will be able to look across the Fall Creek Gorge at the ersatz Egyptian temple-like home of astronomer Carl Sagan. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of celestial matters made his entry into literature in 1985 with the publication of his novel Contact.
