Like any good tour of a literary person, you need to know where they lived and worked. A lot of the places where Mrs. Parker lived are woven into the fabric of her stories. By visiting the streets and neighborhoods she once walked, one gets a sense of being inside a Parker story or piece of verse. These are roughly listed in the chronological order of when she resided in each locale.
