It's about time: Rita Rosenthal

What keeps 102-year-old Rita Rosenthal going? Or as one uptown restaurant owner gently gently inquires on-camera, "What does she eat?!"

You'll have to watch this latest episode of It's about time: Conversations with New Yorkers about time to find out the secret of longevity for this Washington Heights resident.


How do you like your eggs?

How Do You Like Your Eggs in the Morning? takes a look at the G's or Gus's Luncheonette in the upper Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood. It takes its name after the previous owner who is Greek and has been owned by Candido Angel, an immigrant from Mexico, since 2001.

This neighborhood institution prepares more than 3,000 cups a coffee a week. Angel and his employees work as a team and even the neighborhood men get involved in helping him opening his store in the mornings. So - how do you like YOUR eggs?

The video is an offshoot of We are Inwood and is inspired by a song made famous by Dean Martin. This version is available on iTunes and is orchestrated by a company called Pro Choice Karaoke, the only instrumental of this song that could be found. Great version!

Enjoy!
