    AFTER HURRICANE IRMA
    by Barbara Marshall - Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

    There’s no more wondering β€œWhere the Sidewalk Ends” at the late poet and author Shel Silverstein’s former Key West house.

    Hurricane Irma uprooted a large ficus tree that crushed the 1901 Greek Revival home on William Street, demolishing much of the wooden two-story house and taking a portion of the street’s sidewalk with it.

    β€œThe Giving Tree” of one of Silverstein’s best-known children’s books became a β€œTaking Tree,” destroying one of Key West’s literary landmarks. The town has been home to writers such as Tennessee Williams, Thomas McGuane, Hunter S. Thompson, Ann Beattie, Joy Williams and Judy Blume over the years.

    Silverstein was known for his goofy, sometimes ghoulish children’s poetry books including β€œA Light in the Attic.”

    Silverstein was also a quirky but prolific songwriter, who penned the Johnny Cash 1970 Grammy winner, β€œA Boy Named Sue”, and Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show’s β€œThe Cover of β€˜Rolling Stone’” β€œQueen of the Silver Dollar” and β€œSylvia’s Mother’.”

    His songs were recorded by an eclectic roster of singers including Emmylou Harris, Bobby Bare, Peter, Paul and Mary, Waylon Jennings, Marianne Faithful, Belinda Carlisle and former Playmate and Hugh Hefner’s girlfriend, Barbi Benton.

    Silverstein was 67 when he died of a heart attack in 1999 in the house at 618 William Street, a fixture on several Key West literary tours.
