History and Highlights from the Book
Dwarfed by industrial buildings and new residential towers, the little
brick and wood frame James Brown House is the spiritual hub of Manhattan's
West Soho neighborhood. The building's present incarnation as home of the
popular Ear Inn pub is only the latest in a long and fascinating history.
