The photo was taken by CBS staff photographer Don Hunstein at the corner of Jones Street and West 4th Street in the West Village, New York City.  It was just a few feet away from the apartment where the couple lived at the time.

    Suze got the karma for trying to make $$ for knowing Bob.

    Appreciate the effort, but you are off by a block or so.  The cover photo is on Jones St, around the corner from the apartment on 4th.

    As a professional location scout in NYC and fan of Bob Dylan, I was very happy to see this post. RIP Ms. Rotolo

    Living on Mac Dougal St. & Houston (late 60´s) I used to see B.Dylan frequently, I never approached him as I respected his privacy. Great album cover.
