679 West 24th Street was a brownstone house on West 24th Street in New York City that was owned by Mrs Esposito. While Mrs Esposito lived on the main floor, in 1926 she was renting out an apartment on the second floor to two sisters, Tina and Queenie Goldstein.
The sisters were forbidden from bringing home male guests by Mrs Esposito. However, on the night of 6 December 1926, Tina snuck Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski up to her apartment because they needed somewhere to hide.
Behind the scenes
- As American wizards and witches were banned from fraternising with No-Majs beyond the most rudimentary interactions, it is unclear if their landlady Mrs Esposito was a No-Maj or a witch. However, "paying rent" may classify as "rudimentary interactions".
