Edgar Allan Poe, an itinerant Greenwich Village resident, was a particular favorite of rowdy NYU students who, under his direction, assembled a cart, complete with mule, in the chapel of the old University Building. He also recited at an NYU student literary society, the Eucleian Society, on July 1, 1845.
