I've found in the novel this sentence: "Gabriella parked on a quiet, tree-lined
street in the mid-Eighties." What does it mean this "mid-eighties": years of the decade or the reference to one of the numbered streets (i.e. 82nd / 84th / 88th etc.) of New York (the action takes place in the Big Apple)?
Thank you in advance!
I suppose it depends on the book - was it about time travel?
either east (or west) 84th or 85th streets in New York.
I wonder if a Manhattan real estate agent would say that an apartment for sale on 86th would be in the mid or upper 80's.
I can't answer for Manhattan real estate agents, but if I think of years or temperatures, the mid-eighties are 84, 85 and 86,
