He'll always have W. 103rdYou learn something new every day. I always assumed Bogie was a Hollywood kid, since while he had this tough guy image, he also always came across kinda too SoCal for a true Manhattanite.

Two hundred New Yorkers flooded an Upper West Side block yesterday as actress Lauren Bacall uncovered a plaque commemorating her late husband, Humphrey Bogart.
Bacall's visit to the block capped off a yearlong effort by a local video store owner, Gary Dennis, to honor Bogart at the site of his childhood home, 245 W. 103rd St., a brownstone where he lived from his birth in 1899 until 1923. Their son, Stephen Bogart, 57, unveiled a sign yesterday that officially renames that stretch of city block Humphrey Bogart Place.
Now I know it's because he was a Columbia kid...
But it only serves to prove the axiom that only the greatest come from Manhattan.
