This is an artists’ book that attempts to show - in a small way - part of John’s life: the area in Tribeca that was his neighborhood, a place where he
spent a great deal of his time (Walker’s), his building at 67 Vestry St. (near the Hudson River) and some its occupants that he spoke of, the VA Hospital where he died, a photo essay of the events leading up to and
including the Memorial Celebration and some of the messages and comments that were shared. The book ends with some personal reflections.
