Capote’s Brooklyn: With the lost photographs of David Attie

In 1955, Truman Capote rented a basement apartment at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. His short, autobiographical essay about living in the neighborhood was originally published in February 1959 in Holiday magazine. The essay was brought back into print more than fifty years after with sixty stunning, never-before-seen photos of Capote and his neighborhood by David Attie, originally commissioned for the article but never published–until now.
