Sleeping in Dylan Thomas’ bed!

Well, not quite, perhaps, but imagine my surprise on checking into the Washington Square Hotel to find that among the “many acclaimed actors, musicians and writers” who have¬†stayed here (according to the Guest Directory) was one Dylan Thomas! And we are right down the street from the tavern in which he consumed those 17 (or was it 18?) shots of whiskey.

View from what I'm going to pretend was Dylan Thomas' own bedroom.
