In his book, "Anger is an Energy," he mentions seeing women looking out their prison cells, from his apt window, close to meat packing district. Bayview Correctional Facility was a women's jail on W 20th and 11th ave, so most likely he lived in that area.


In his (really good) biography (Anger is an energy), Lydon talks about living in NY and recording PIL albums with American musicians and producers. During this period he explains that he was living in the Meat Packing district. I believe he was somewhere around 10th avenue. A place where he had musicians coming to play and hang out.

From :

“Once in New York, he and his PiL bandmates eventually got a 2,500-square-foot loft on West 19th Street, between 10th and 11th. The area was “dirt-cheap and industrial and full of incredibly seedy gay nightclubs like nothing we used to know in England.”
