My dad’s old apartment

Published Sep 24 2012

You’d probably never guess because his English is not so great, but my dad has lived here for quite some time. This weekend, he told me about a different apartment in the UWS that he used to live in, in the 60’s. He said lived in a tiny, tiny one bedroom behind Lincoln Center for $36.40/month.

And then at some point he didn’t feel like living there, so he sublet it for $72/month and made some money off of his tiny 1BR.

And then a few years later, he moved out and got his security deposit back — yup, $36.40.

The next time I go back to my parents’, I’m going to try to find a photo of that apartment. Or at least, a photo of my dad in the 60’s. I think he was pretty handsome!
