☞ WALK: The Other Langston Hughes House

The charming little block of East 127th Street often confuses first-time sightseers since there are two houses on the block associated with Langston Hughes. At first glance, the house at 13 East 127th Street seems to be the historic house of Mr. Hughes since the image of the famous author can be found peeking at onlookers. Truth be told, the house's pensive poster of Langston actually gazes across the street at the actual house on 20 East 127th Street (lower photo). The author's house was recently put up for sale last summer but was eventually pulled off the market at year's end. Read more about all things Langston Hughes in our past post: LINK.
