welcome to the Perry Street Workshop Group of Alcoholics Anonymous

“There is
no wrong way to get sober.”

~ Rudy

Perry Street has traditionally been a place where no subject is off-limits. Anything we need to discuss to remain sober is tolerated. As a result, over the years, we have heard people share about everything from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Perry Street's physical aesthetic has long been defined by its high funk factor. It has always served as a fertile seedbed of sobriety.

OVERHEARD AT PERRY STREET

“You can take the rum out of the fruitcake,
but you still have the fruitcake.”

“Anything worth doing is worth doing obsessively.”

~ overheard at Perry Street

Each group has but one primary purpose — to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

~ Tradition Five

The door to 50 Perry Street has been open continuously since 1958.

OVERHEARD AT PERRY STREET
