“New York is cold, but I like where I’m living” The View From Leonard Cohen’s 1960s NYC Apartment

During the late 1960s Leonard Cohen and Marianne lived in a loft at 179 Stanton Street in New York, the site to which Cohen refers in “Famous Blue Raincoat:”

New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

Michael Gulas offers these photos of the view these days [in 2015, when this post was first published] from that apartment. The photo of the building itself and the map are from Google Maps.
