“I’ve lived in different New York neighborhoods most of my life, from Jackson Heights, Queens, to Greenwich Village, where I am now. It’s a big city, but I like the little communities that bring people together, like the chess players in Washington Square Park or the people from all walks of life that I know at my senior center.
My late husband, Wally, and I made great friends volunteering at the American Museum of Natural History. We’ve always enjoyed being a part of the action.
Looking to the future, I worry. I wonder if my children, but especially my grandchildren, will be able to enjoy the good things I’ve had. It’s a comfort to know I’ve put The Trust in my will to preserve what I love about this city.
I know that at The Trust I get the most bang for my buck, and my gift will be well managed by people who know what they’re doing. As a member of their Legacy Society, I look forward to meeting like-minded people who believe as much as I do in the power of community.”
