After the release of Dust Bowl Ballads in the summer of 1940, Guthrie was also working on numerous NYC radio programs. He sent for his wife and three children to join him at this four bedroom apartment.

The apartment became a social hub of Guthrie's world: the folks that continuously streamed included Alan Lomax, Lead Belly, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.
