The 95-year-old comedy icon explains in HBO’s upcoming documentary If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast that he was reading the newspaper, as he does every morning. “Before having breakfast, I pick up my newspaper, get the obituary section and see if I’m listed,” he jokes in the film. “If I’m not, I’ll have my breakfast.”
We are thrilled to report that Community Board 7 approved the resolution to designate the NW corner of 71st Street and Columbus Avenue as MRS. PONSIE B. HILLMAN WAY!
A ceremony will be planned in the fall.
Project FIND enthusiastically supported the street co-naming after Mrs. Ponsie B. Hillman -- a trailblazer in the civil rights and labor movements.
Mrs. Hillman was a long-time supporter of Project FIND whose many years of volunteering made her a beloved member of our community on the Upper West Side, particularly at our Hargrave Senior Center.
