Author Ada Calhoun joins Rick Kogan on After Hours to talk about her new book, St. Mark’s is Dead: The Many Lives of America’s Hippest Street.  Calhoun details the long history of St. Mark’s Place in Manhattan’s East Village neighborhood, the street’s status as a center of artistic creativity and political activism, and through comparing her own experience growing up on St. Mark’s Place to other accounts from other eras, she finds that everyone has a different idea of when “St. Marks died”.
