The Council of Hydra decided to name a street after Leonard.
This has been a project of the Municipality to honour his memory.

This is such a great gesture. Am I correct that it is the street along which Leonard's house stands?

Thanks.

Yes. You can see the trees in Leonard's garden behind the wall on the left.

Dear Jarkko,
this is good news. And a fine Idea.
Am I right, that there is a person from Espoo behind it?
If so Tanks.
If not:
Thanks anyway for your heartful work 8)

travel article in the mail on sunday.

Hallelujah! It's the island that made Leonard Cohen a star – the perfect mix of inspiring beauty and ‘flawless anarchy’The Mail on Sunday's Steve Turner toured the Greek island of Hydra, which has a rich cultural heritage.

Leonard Cohen bought his house on the island in September 1960 and lived there for six years

In his 1941 The Colossus Of Marousi, Henry Miller described the island as ‘the epitome of flawless anarchy’...

Hi everyone,

I'm new on this forum, though a long time reader (over 20 years).


I just recently stumbled about a Greek firm which is selling replicas of the street sign (€ 10 plus shipping).

You can order it here (though I don't know if they are shipping outside the EU):

I ordered mine today. :D

All the best,
Dennis

Hi Hugo,

You must have ordered the last one, as they are now out of stock..... But they'll be back.

That's a pity, hope they will be back in stock soon. Mine should arrive in the next 10 days or so. Will post if it is worth its money.

My sign came today :D

It's aluminum with some printed film.
On the back side there are two strips of double-sided adhesive attached so you can apply it where ever you want.

The size is

25cm x 13,5cm x 1mm

(inches: 9.84 x 5.31 x 0.04)

I photographed it, but don't know how to upload pics directly, so here two external links:

I myself am absolutly content with it.


All the best,
Dennis
