Bogart News


New York Daily News - Breaking News: "NYC renames block after Humphrey Bogart

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Upper West Side brownstone where Humphrey Bogart grew up has long ago been turned into public housing. But the block, like Paris, will always be his.

Scores of fans stood in the drizzle Saturday as the city unveiled a plaque renaming the short stretch in front of 245 W. 103rd St. as Humphrey Bogart Place.

'Bogie would have never believed it,' said the actress Lauren Bacall, who was married to Bogart from 1945 until his death in 1957. She said the day was an emotional one, and her time with Bogart too short."

Bill, any chance there'll be another Bogie mystery? I loved the book. Posted a review on my website several months back.

Probably not a chance, but thanks, as always for the kind words. I don't know the status of iBooks since the death of Byron Preiss, but everything is most likely in publishing limbo.

Well, fooey, Bill, I love that book too. Keeping my fingers crossed that you can do a sequel.
