Ms. Elsie Turns 106

Ms. Elsie Turns 106

Some people say the secret to a long life is an apple a day, but if you talk to 106-year-old Ms. Elsie Mayer, she might tell you her secret is daily ice cream and cake. Ms. Mayer was born in Poland and moved to the United States with her family when she was 10. A resident of Independence Towers for 39 years, she has lived through two World Wars and 18 U.S. presidents. Millennium Development, which operates the Independence Towers Neighborhood Center, threw Ms. Mayer a big 106th birthday bash on December 20, 2017. In attendance were her son Martin, daughter-in-law, home attendant Natie, and representatives from Council Member Stephen Levin’s office, the NYC Department for the Aging, and PSA 3.
