"It was like I had to go lick the ground [on the LES] for a few years to understand New York City and a whole different side of the pavement," the singer -- who paid $1,100 per month for the unit, with an assist from her father -- told MTV.

"I wanted to live alone -- live in solitude with my music," Gaga said of her time in the neighborhood. "I wanted to read poetry and be overly dramatic about everything and that's what I did."
