While at the celebration of Charlie Parker’s 95th birthday in Lincoln Cemetery yesterday, I forgot to ask Bird’s daughter Kim if she had any further recollections of the building pictured above.  I made a pilgrimage to Parker’s final home while in New York earlier this year.  Unlike most of his residences in the Kansas City area, the building in a moneyed part of Manhattan is well-preserved.
