About

Muhammad Ali lived here from 1971 to 1974, according to an article in today's Philadelphia Inquirer at p. A14. The article is about the house being set to be auctioned on 9/8/12.
The article also says that in 1971 Ali had lived in the Green Hill Farms section of Philadelphia (I think his neighborhood actually bordered Green Hill Farms, which was a suburb) and in 1973 rented a home on Barbara Drive in Cherry Hill. Does anyone know the addresses?
There is a good essay on someone as a kid visiting Ali at the Philly home at http://gratuitoussocks.wordpress.com/2008/04/21/mohamed-ali/.

This AM, on the Anthony Gargano Show on 96.5 FM, The Fanatic, a caller named Mike said that when he was a teen, two weeks after the big Ali-Frazier fight (I think he was talking about Ali-Frazier I in 1971), he was in a group of about ten friends who knocked on Mr. Ali's front door. Mr. Ali came out onto the lawn and talked with the kids. He had a bruise on his jaw. He then invited them all into his kitchen to talk. The caller said he was very friendly and down to earth.
