Main character is standing on the front steps of a brownstone (or other townhouse-type of building) waiting for someone to answer the door. Would he have been "buzzed in" or would the door have to be physically unlocked?
Also, does anyone know of any good streaming radio stations that play music from the 30s/40s?
