my hero

unless you live in new york city, or read the gothamist you may not have been introduced to my hero. meet Editta Sherman.
she is a noted photographer, a wearer of hats, a nyc icon and she is getting kicked out of her sweet pad! she is 96, pays $540 a month and has lived there for 59 years. they are renovating and want her out. she's not budging for less than 10 mill. i can only hope that i'm that crazy and that stubborn at her age. she is the duchess of carnegie hall and my heart.
