Producer Alice Furlaud lived in New York City with her husband Max through the 1950s. Her memories - of Union Square, the Lower East Side, 17th Street, Irving Place, the Village - evoke a time when dinner parties had to have an equal number of men and women, when you could get a full course dinner for 75 cents, when the gap between rich and poor was not nearly as visible as now, when the city was much more accessible to poor, starving artists and writers. Winner of 2004 Gracie Award from The National Women in Radio and Television Foundation.
