“I waited in a dark alley behind Mexican kitchens because her sister wasn’t supposed to see me. Dogs ran by. There were little lamps illuminating the little rat alleys. I could hear Terry and her sister arguing in the soft, warm night. I was ready for anything.” – from On The Road by Jack Kerouac
Kerouac’s description of a Los Angeles alley makes the rather clean, well-lit Alligator Alley in downtown Vero Beach look like a movie set.
