Brooke Astor Dies at 105.

August 14, 2007

“If I go up to Harlem or down to Sixth Street, and I’m not dressed up or I’m not wearing my jewelry, then the people feel I’m talking down to them. People expect to see Mrs. Astor, not some dowdy old lady, and I don’t intend to disappoint them.” —Brooke Astor, who was named a “living landmark” by the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 1997.

Brooke Astor (March 30, 1902 – August 13, 2007)

    Love your blog.
