679 West 24th Street was a brownstone house on West 24th Street in New York City that was owned by Mrs Esposito.[1][2] 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.[1] The sisters were forbidden from bringing home male guests by Mrs Esposito.[1][3] 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.[1][3]

The interior of the Goldstein apartment consists of a sitting room with a fireplace, an iron, a clotheshorse, dress maker's dummy, sofa and assorted magazines scattered about. There is also a kitchen with a table, chairs and cupboards stocked with 'the components of a meal' and containing assorted dishes and cutlery. There is a bedroom with 'neatly made twin beds' for guests and at least one other bed room for the use of the Goldstein sisters.[1][3]
