Henry Miller, author of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, lived at 91 Remsen Street from 1924 to 1925 with his second wife, June. In Plexus, book two of the fictionalized account of his early life, he describes searching for and finding the apartment and his worries about paying the rent: “It was a stunning place she had to rent, but far beyond our means...I was convinced that if we took it, we’d be sunk.” After a year, the couple was evicted for failure to pay rent.
