Every city has its trendy or bohemian districts. New York City has Soho and the Village, San Francisco has Haight-Ashbury and Hayes Valley and Boston has Back Bay and Cambridge.

The Park Avenue Stories chronicle some of the colorful stories and people of this district and leaves readers trying to pinpoint locations and places that are thinly veiled throughout the stories.
