Still, life has been known to change unexpectedly. Exclusive silvery high-rises could appear at the horizon. Disasters of so many kinds could rob us of our home. Illness could diminish sight, relegating the kitchen view to a dim memory. Birthdays loom.
MY PRIVATE CONEY presents IT WAS HER NEW YORK, the short stories that accompany the work-in-progress video and photo collection of the same name (myprivateconey.com - media link - IT WAS HER NEW YORK). The stories and the media explore the tender rubble that holds both my mother, Florence's and New York's soul as one disappears into old age and the other into gentrification. All are real observations and/or experiences with very little tall-tale telling.
Except when it makes the story better.
