Associated walking tour: Literary Greenwich Village
Walking tour stop description: "Proceeding up Fifth Ave we reach the Rubin International Residence Hall of NYU. This formerly was the Grosvenor Hotel (35 Fifth Ave). Willa Cather moved here in 1927 after she gave up an apartment on Bank St. (1912-27) where she had written O Pioneers! (1913), Song of the Lark (1915), My Ántonia (1918)."
Willa Cather lived at 5 Bank Street with her friend Edith Lewis, an editor, and they moved to 35 Fifth Ave when their building was scheduled to be demolished to make way for the Seventh Avenue subway line.
