In Her Footsteps…

Last summer I took my usual trip to NYC and NJ to visit family. During that visit I took 1 day to visit Mom’s (Gayook’s) favorite places. I started out visiting her apartment on the Upper Eastside (85th Street between 2nd and 3rd Ave, 1st floor) I was able to talk to someone who lived in the building but not the people who lived in her apartment.
