#TodayinNY Photographer Grace Cavallo Visits Aunt Anne Who Was 7th Person To Move To Roosevelt Island In 1976 - Snaps Beautiful East River Waterfront Skyline Picture From Roosevelt Island

Photographer Grace Cavallo visits her Roosevelt Island Aunt Anne every Sunday. Ms. Cavallo reports:

The story is...

I visit my aunt, Anne Brienza, on Roosevelt Island every Sunday. We go to the Chapel of the Good Shepherd on the island and then spend the day together. It's the church where she got sister and I were flower girls. My aunt will be 90 years old next month, but you would never know it. She was the 7th person to move to Roosevelt Island in 1976 1975. There was nothing there at that time, so much so that she had to sign a waiver absolving anyone if any harm came to her.

I take a picture a day of my travels and adventures in the city called #TodayinNY. This was taken as I was leaving my aunt’s apartment Sunday October 4. The light, clouds, and reflections off the East River were just beautiful.
