The Potato Eater: The raw true story of Padric, a gay hustler from the Bronx who spent 1941-1965 in and out of 20 prisons by Alison Leslie GoldFrom an audio tape made in 1977 in New York City: I was 16 when I was arrested for corrupting the morals of soldiers and sailors, blocking a public doorway, and disturbing the peace. In prison I began to grow up and learn. I learned how to pick pockets, how to open five kinds of safes, how to forge checks, how to work second story, how to boost. We’d practice there. I learned all the necessary things to spend 20 more years in different prisons. Riker’s Island was my Junior High School. Sing Sing and Dannemora State were my High Schools. The chain gang and Leavenworth were my colleges.
Immediately I had ‘Homosexual, Degenerate, Cock Sucker’ stamped on my records so I was rarely in population with the rest of the men. I was kept in segregation with junkie queens, wino queens, booster queens, prick peddlers, drag queens and some men who just preferred to be in the homo block where they were adored and given sexual comfort. Life in segregation with those mad sissies was like being caged with a mass of mad, screaming peacocks.
A Memoir About New York City''s Famous Gay Hustler Bar ROUNDS

In this excerpt from Martin Duberman's new memoir, the historian recalls his descent into Gotham's gritty corners and some of the people he met there. Two very different bars served as two very different backdrops. The climate and clientele in Rounds, the elegant, handsomely designed and softly lit bar in the East Fifties, was light years away from the other central emporium, the down-and-dirty West Forties hangout, Haymarket. Perhaps inspired by the cash-and-carry atmosphere of Haymarket, Gore then proceeded to claim that. The conversational gambits at Rounds were in general more mannerly and indirect. Assured young college students for which substitute incipient filmmakers, struggling actors, aspiring rock stars mingled with unembarrassed ease among snottily elegant, conspicuously successful older men.
