Where did Ogden Nash live?

He was born in Rye, New York, lived and worked in various places and his answer to where he lived is best answered in his own words: * 'I could have loved New York, had I not loved Balti-more.' He died in the city he lived in and loved on 19 May 1971. He went to Baltimore to take a job writing street-car advertising, a job that had been held by F. Scott Fitgerald. His often mocked poetry included such dandies as: * 'Candy is dandy But liquor Is quicker' and * 'The Cow is of the Bovine Ilk, One end is moo, the other milk.' Though not a bard like Shakespear, he certainly had a way with words.
