Sonia, Hart Crane, Siegel & Shuster: Cleveland

In case you missed this comment by "Kusmi" it links Sonia, Hart Crane, and Siegel and Shuster, I'll reproduce it here.

Kusmi has left a new comment on your post "Sonia's 85th Birthday": I just wanted to thank you for posting all these great Lovecraftian tidbits. I was lucky to have found your blog- quite by accident! I'm in Cleveland, not far from where Sonia once resided. (Sadly, the apartment building was demolished in the 1960's.) But one cool thing I'll pass along- that old place, 1912 East 86th St., is only a mere 20 blocks or so from the old Glenville neighborhood, which is where two Jewish high school kids- Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman in 1930. Lovecraft also wrote a pretty decent poem (a satire on Clevelander Hart Crane's work) about the neighborhood, Euclid Ave. He loved his short stay here, which is something to be proud of. Thanks again for you useful site!
