PLACES I'VE ADDED to the Rolling Stone map
USF - University of San Francisco (I enrolled here in Sep 1957; the Jesuits threw me out in Oct 1961. I lived here in Phelan Hall when I wasn't living in an off-campus apartment. One summer I lived, undetected, in a faculty office - Fitzgerald's; I avoided the under-the-door drafts by sleeping a coffin normally used by basketball cheerleaders as a game prop)
SMH - St. Mary's Hospital (I worked here as a the only non-Black janitor; also later in Central Supply)
F. 28 Hemway Terrace (Hemway is Ashbury, continued north of Fulton, roomed with Jack DeGovia, 1962; Jack's girlfriend Sheila McCafferty ran a restaurant at the site which next became the Blue Unicorn)
G. Petrini Plaza shopping center
H. Fulton Foods ma & pa grocery which fed me (mostly bourbon and blue cheese) on credit
J. 1725 Fulton, #10 (my first apartment, Summer 1958, with George Schornick who went off to the Seminary; next year with Mike Prest who later committed suicide rather than 'come out')
K. 58 Clayton, #6 (Ed Twigg, Sam Andrew, & me: Summer 62; when we ran out of money Sam and I lived on nothing but rice for two months)
L. 115 Cole (Summer 1963, Dave Ayala); 117 Cole (several times)
M. Russian Restaurant (University 'Good Eats' Cafe) run by George and Ksenya Alexeff; they gave me free dinners at closing time for about a year
N. 1849 Page (#1, 2nd floor front, with Sam Andrew and Penny and Sue Remolif, 1962 -- the first commune in the Haight; 3rd floor rear, with Jack DeGovia, Dan Duggan and Dave Ayala, Fall 1963 till summer 1964)
O. Safeway, Littleman Markets
P. Bob's Drive-In on Stanyan, where I spent many of my post-2am hours drinking free refills poured by a waitress we called Sweetwater (I think that's a town she came from in Tennessee)
Q. 610 Cole My friend Lee Vandendale's apartment; I spent many, many hours there; we celebrated Beethoven's birthday there with a singing of the 4th mvt of the 9th; Charles Manson lived at 616 Cole
R. 625 Shrader Apartment of Anne O'Brien & Ginny Mathis - first San Francisco address of the author of "Interview with the Vampire"
S. House on Divisadero where "Inverview with the Vampire" begins
