My first home

From November of 1958 until roughly June of 1968 I lived in this location. It was a rent-controlled tenement, built at the end of the 19th century. Roach and rat infested, but we called it home. We lived one block east of the ritzy Waldorf Astoria on 50th Street and 3rd Avenue — 160 East 50th St. We paid $55 a month for the entire 3rd floor, back when New York was New York.
