'The air was soft, the stars so fine, the promise of every cobbled alley so great..." This ode by the On the Road and Dharma Bums author is embedded in his namesake alley, a fittingly poetic and slightly seedy shortcut between Chinatown and North Beach via Kerouac haunts City Lights and Vesuvio – Kerouac took literature, Buddhism and beer seriously.
