Hart Crane Memorial

Hart Crane was an East High School student, who published his first poem at 16. Known as a "poet’s poet," Crane published The Bridge in 1930. His most significant work, it told the story of modernization of America. It was also read on national television during an anniversary celebration of the Brooklyn Bridge. Crane tragically committed suicide at 32, after battling alcoholism and depression in an era less accepting of homosexuality than today. He referenced these struggles throughout his work.

Clarence Crane, Hart’s father and owner of Crane’s Chocolate Studio, invented the Life-Saver as a peppermint "summer candy" that could withstand the heat that melted chocolate. A granite marker commemorates the original site of the Crane Family home on E. 115th Street.
