2. And to think he cooked a lot of that up right in the kitchen.

The man himself, with his wife Nellie, at his 243 West 63rd Street apartment kitchen where composed many of his works.

3. The western end of the block between Amsterdam and West End Avenues is now known as:

Thelonious Sphere Monk Circle, and at the eastern end of that street is Lincoln Center, where they hold the Thelonius Monk Jazz Festival.
