rent asunder

west 13th

My earliest NYC rent wasn’t paid in cash.

I worked 40 hours each week for a place backstage in the mid-1970’s. 

My first rented apartment was in the Village. It cost $185, split 2 ways. 

$92.50 was tough to gather every 30 days, back then.

Then rent jumped in various places to $265. $850. $1990. $3300.

Well, brace yourself Mott Haven, we’ve been discovered.
