Where I used to live
Posted on

From 1991-1995 I lived in midtown Manhattan, starting at my tita’s place on 333 East 55th.

Right next to this is the church I used to visit daily—St. John the Evangelist.

St. John the Evangelist Church

It is known for its pipe organs.

and cute Catholic boys.
(Note: Church-going boys are a huge turn on, especially if they’re cute and not with their girlfriends. Even more cute if you see them in deep prayer. +1000 pogi points)

During the ’90s I considered this a very modern-looking church, that’s why I loved this place.

It is very near the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Diagnostic Imaging Center

And Bernie Madoff’s old office building.

This is where I used to buy groceries. It used to be called The Associated. Memories of buying roast chicken with Chelo and yogurt for my dad here.

After two years, my dad got me my own place at 100 United Nations Plaza

You will recognize it because of its iconic pyramid-like top.

When I graduated, my dad had it rented out before finally selling it at a good price.
I honestly didn’t know if and when I would ever see this place again. I’m just happy to be here right now, but I don’t think I want to live here again.
More on the ‘hood later. 🙂
