David Duchovny's childhood room with a graveyard view on 2nd Avenue

On the occasion of his new novel, The New Yorker has a short interview in this week's issue (meant to note this in the links wrap on Thursday!) with David DuchovnyFor the article, the star of "The X-Files" and "Californicationrevisits the East Village of his youth. He grew up across the way from St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery on Second Avenue and 10th Street. (His mother still lives nearby.)

"See the lights on the corner there? On the third floor? Two windows down. That was my bedroom, and this was my view." He gestured toward the churchyard. "It’s a weird view. It's a graveyard. We used to play baseball there. The headstones were flat, and we used them as bases." Just then, the bells began to chime. "Wow," he said. "I'm gonna dissolve."

Always cool to read about EV/LES natives, a fascinating demographic.

Being a tremendous X Files fan I was so excited the first time I saw the signed photo of David Duchovny at Open Pantry. They told me he came in from time to time when he visited his mom. Never bumped into him though, but the chocolate raspberry coffee was always worth the visit.
