Born in the city and raised on the Upper West Side, Gaga, aka Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, spent her early years in NYC learning to play the piano and sing, and eventually make her way onto the local music circuit.
Now on her fifth studio album, her tour will take her temporarily away from her apartment with Central Park views and duties as NYC entertainment ambassador. But while Gaga is often on the road, New York remains her home.
Take a walk down Gaga’s memory lane to find out where the singer used to hang out, go to school and perform — and see the luxurious life she’s living now, when she spends time in the heart of Manhattan.
