Goodman gives an interview to Elle about what it was like living in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen in the 70s.
We had junkies on 52nd and Ninth doing their junkie dance. My bathroom was in the hallway. I’d find needles, cooked bottle caps accouterments in the toilet. My bathtub was in the kitchen. I hand-rigged a shower in it. It wasn’t exactly Hef’s mansion, but if the pressure built up enough, it served.
