A brief video of caroling at Jenny and Christy Spiecher’s house. Jenny used to live in the first floor of my building. I have a picture from their party last year (scroll down). Two of the musicians are the same, and they are from the Romp family, from Christmas on Jane Street: A True Story. They’ve been selling trees on Jane Street since 1988. This party was packed, by the way, but most of the people were in the room behind me. Where the food was.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
