14 East 95th Street

The first address for Helene in "84 Charing Cross Road" is number 14, East 95th Street, New York. The building was demolished during the 1950s, at which point Helene had to move out and spent several weeks living in friends' apartments, before taking up a lease on her next home at 305 East 72nd Street.

One of the wonderful things about the internet is that Google has created it's "street view", from which I'm able to bring you a reasonably up-to-date image of the building that nows stands on the site where Helene once lived in (link to Google).
