I know that Aaron Copland was born in Brooklyn. I am confused by the fact that the Aaron Copland School of Music is at Queens College. But I never knew exactly where he was born until Sunday. The "Living In" feature was about Prospect Heights (where I spend some time because my sister lives there). It turns out that Copland lived over his parents' store at 630 Washington Avenue, near Atlantic. I wonder if there's a plaque?
