In My Day It Was Beautiful Here

"My name is Jean. I've lived in this building for 60 years. I'm 84. All our kids went to Long Island, but I stayed here. I worked for the telephone company for 40 years. Rode the subway, everything was fine. Not like today, you know, where everybody is dog eat dog. In my day it was beautiful, and it still is. I still like it. I went to the school on the corner here. All my mother's children when to that school."
