I'm nearly certain we've never learned where Bobby lives, but I doubt very much he lives in Manhattan on a cop's salary, so he wouldn't be able to walk home from Times Square. I would guess Bobby returned to his old neighborhood after the army so he could take care of his mother's affairs after she went to Carmel Ridge. He probably doesn't live *in* the old neighborhood (Canarsie), but maybe another area of Brooklyn. Queens is another good bet...a lot of cops and firefighters live there. Eames lives in Rockaway, which is in Queens
