Review for Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’m glad to have this opportunity to say a few good things about The Met. Council in whose building on West 61st St. (and West End Ave.) I reside. I was sitting today with one of my neighbors, Max Hirshhorn who is 102 years old and a Holocaust surviver, and saying how lucky we were to be a part of this residence project. The staff is so caring and efficient; Ephraim Siegal, the director of services is the best and so are Anthony the Super, and his assistant Jose, and our security guard William Benson. They all have contributed to making the tenants in the building feel at home and become a family like community. Not everyone has the horrible experience history of my friend Max, but everyone past 70 years of age who has no living partner needs a place he can call home that is affordable. The Met council projects provide this, and for that we are thankful one by one. I have been playing music around the world and in America for more than fifty years. And now that I’ve become a senior citizen the Met council’s solution has become a dream fulfilled. I have gladly taken my guitar and microphone and performed for my neighbors and celebrated with them Max’s one hundred and two birthday. I wish Max many more years of peace, health and community care, and to the Met. Council, I wish a hundred more years of outstanding service to New York City’s needy and the elderly.
