Only in the country; A tree, Diane Wiest and a gun

I moved to New York City in the fall of 1975. My first apartment (on West 85th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue) cost a whopping $165 a month. It was a studio apartment with a bathtub in the kitchen and a toilet in what once was a closet. Speaking of closets, there were none. As a full-time foot messenger for Media Sound Recording Studio, (after taxes) I cleared precisely $88 a week. Two weeks’ salary paid the rent. The leftover money went to food and an occasional Woody Allen movie. I certainly couldn’t afford a Christmas tree.  Read more
