Precise location? It’s part of the Wallace Stevens walk between his home in the West End and The Hartford.
That’s good enough! I’ll say, it is possible to get the exact location from a map online, but you get extra points for not cheating and looking that up.

That’s funny. I was just thinking last night about the drunken brawl this fella was in with Ernie Hemingway. Hemingway won.
Anyway, I don’t know exactly where number 3 is, so someone else can say.
Oh, and James Finnegan, poet laureate of W.Hartford really digs this fella cos they work(ed) similar jobs.
Back in the days when writers were interesting.
And violent drunks.
Well, if we’re gonna split hairs about it, yes.
I once ate a bunch of cocktail wieners at the Friends and Enemies of Wallace Stevens fundraiser.
Secret ingredient: grape jelly
Your comment originally got stuck in the spam filter, by the way, because of the use of the phrase “cocktail wieners.” Computers are still pretty stupid to not know that this was being used correctly in context, and not there to try to sell people enhancement drugs.
This one’s in front of St. Francis where, after many years, the DOT has yet to define which lane should merge into which when driving west.
Anyway, if you care to peruse my walk along the Wallace Stevens Walk (I know nothing of poetry, but the Friend and Enemies of Wallace Stevens endorsed my page), check it out.
Oops; Stanza III is in front of the Hartford Conservatory.
Correct! I was walking to St. Francis when I took this picture, but thought getting one directly in front of the hospital, where everyone sits in traffic, would’ve been too easy.
