John Cale returned to 56 Ludlow Street in NYC on January 8, 2013, the address where he lived with Lou Reed in 1965.
He was interviewed by Marc Myers of the Wall Street Journal.
Our apartment was a railroad flat—a long room running from the windows in the front to a small bedroom and a bathroom in the back. I slept on a mattress, under the windowsill in the front overlooking Ludlow. We burned crates and furniture in the fireplace to keep warm. There was no heat in the winter other than the gas stove.
