THE STARS BENEATH OUR FEET SETTING
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
ST. NICHOLAS HOUSES, HARLEM
THE AFTER SCHOOL STORAGE ROOM
The Stars Beneath Our Feet takes place in modern-day New York City, NY, USA.
Lolly and Vega live in Harlem, a neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. They live in St. Nicholas Houses or "Saint Nick," which is a public housing project consisting of a large complex of apartment buildings and a park. Lolly describes it as a dangerous and run down place but also filled with friends and families.
Lolly lives with his mother in an apartment. She and Lolly's father divorced and he doesn't see his dad that much. His mother has been dating Yvonne for a few years and she is a stable presence in Lolly's life. Lolly's big brother Jermaine used to share a room with him but he was murdered in October, leaving the family devastated.
Lolly spends a lot of time in an after-school program for St. Nick's residents. The director, Mr. Ali, allows him to build his elaborate Legos cities in a large empty storage room. Lolly has mixed feelings when Big Rose joins him.
