In mid-December, 1961, shortly after recording his first album for Columbia, Dylan moved into his first rented apartment, a tiny, scruffy place above Bruno's Spaghetti Shop, and persuaded his girlfriend, Suze Rotolo, to move in with him. It was in the middle of West Fourth Street, in February 1963, that Dylan and Suze, together again after seven months' separation, were photographed in the snow for the cover of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan by Columbia staff photographer Don Hunstein, who recalled in the Dylan magazine The Telegraph:
"We went down to Dylan's place on Fourth Street, just off Sixth Avenue, right in the heart of the Village. It was winter, dirty snow on the ground...
When several years later, Dylan had transformed himself from protest singer to pop star, and suffered bitter backlash from the old folkies who'd championed him in his early Village days, he used Fourth Street as a symbol for the scene that he'd left behind, and wrote a caustic put-down of those who felt he'd betrayed them -- Positively Fourth Street.
Well, I can't tell you why I did it, but I said, Just walk up and down the street. There wasn't very much thought to it. It was late afternoon -- you can tell that the sun was low behind them. It must have been pretty uncomfortable, out there in the slush."
John Bauldie, Positively 4th Street Revisited,
Q 104 (May 1995), p. 57.
