  1. I went to the Saint Marks when I first came out. I never realized it was quite so old by then. It had 7 or 8 floors of sex and a pool in the basement. I don’t remember so much talking but I do remember it was fun.

    On a side note, my friend Steve was there one night and came out to find his car missing. He exited a wrong door and didn’t realize it was on the other side of the building. He called his dad in White Plains who drove into the city around 3am. Poor Steve came out to his dad that night. LOL Steve and his partner of 10 years got married in NY last month. He is still a good friend.

      Thank you for sharing such an interesting story. The younger generation doesn’t realise what an intricate part the bath houses played in the lives of us older gay men. It wasn’t just sex, it was an opportunity to socialize with other gay men. And congratulations to Steve and his partner.
