This is a (hopefully) handy dandy little visual aid to help your mental picture of where everyone is while living and loving in the LATS ‘Verse.
The Manhattan penthouse they all share was a (very) belated wedding gift to Kurt and Blaine from Carter and Imelda. Although Bas often jokes about giving up his own Manhattan apartment, it’s a truly gorgeous 2 bedroom, 2 bath place and living up on the upper east side is no real hardship for him. Their Paris apartment is a cozy place located in the 5th district, on the Left Bank, in the old Latin Quarter and this little gem is Sebastian’s happy place. It was one of his mother’s apartments and she gave it to him as a gift when he moved to the states as an incentive for him to visit and visit often. They all love it but don’t get to use it nearly as often as they’d like. Even Jesse is reluctantly impressed. The San Francisco house was Kurt's brainchild. He insisted on them all getting a house together that was “theirs”. Not Jesse’s place, or Sebastian’s place or the penthouse but a new home where they could all make new memories together. Even though Sebastian complains about being a San Fran stereotype, he loves their little bungalow. The gesture means more to Jesse than he lets on b/c it proves that everyone, not just Kurt, is making a place for him in their lives and in their future.
While their living arrangements are certainly lavish and the boys make themselves at home in all three of their not so humble abodes, there is one major sticking point: Jesse still hasn’t let go of his place in Chelsea. He’s currently allowing Donavan sublet it, something he may very well come to regret. It’s something that he, Kurt and Blaine argue about from time to time but surprisingly Sebastian understands why Jesse is hanging onto his place and that understanding has been a source of bonding for the two of them
They say if you can make it here you can make it anywhere and be it in a posh penthouse on the Upper East Side, a homey little brownstone in Brooklyn, a charming place in Chelsea or a funky downtown loft New York is where several of our characters call home. Whether they're chasing Broadway dreams, burning up the pro gaming circuit, shaping young minds, recording an album, scheming to get a man or plotting just where in their enemy's back they're going to bury that hatchet the city never sleeps and neither do they.
They say Ohio is for lovers and these boys and girls are doing their level best to prove that true. Whether it's old flames possibly reigniting or new flames threatening to blaze, Ohio has never been hotter. Even though most of the action takes place in the urban oasis of Cincinnati, whenever anyone gets homesick they can always take a quick trip to Lima to visit Burt and Carole or if they want a more refined experience they can head on over to Westerville, where Carter and Imelda haven't traded in their upscale address just yet.
Sebastian may call New York home these days but part of his heart is always going to belong to France, after all that is where his mother and grandmother live. These ladies may not live in the good old USA but trust me, they still manage to cause plenty of drama from afar.
