"I’m 86. And that’s about enough. I’m ready to go."
“Aren’t you afraid of death?”
“Why would I be?”
“Isn’t that sort of a natural condition of living?”
“Not when you miss your husband as much as I do.”
Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton recently installed a window display in The Library Shop to celebrate the release of his new book - simply titled Humans of New York - based on his beautiful site. While he was at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building working on the installation, Brandon spoke with Ruth, one of our amazing volunteers.
Thanks, Ruth, for everything you do here, and for sharing your story with Brandon. Thanks, Brandon, for sharing Ruth’s story with the rest of the world.
