Margaret Kennedy

Margaret Kennedy, or Mag as she's known, lived in this room 35 years ago when she was taking care of my sister and me. Mag and I are in the process of editing our conversation about what it was like for her to come to this country, interview for jobs, take care of kids in Manhattan, and later start a family and family business in the Bronx, all the while staying connected to ten siblings, parents, and friends back home in Cork, Ireland. We are going to have dinner at her place in Yonkers this summer, see if we can't get her husband Phil and three grown children in on the conversation. That's New York City on her scarf, incidentally.
