The West Side Rag got to be part of a happy reunion this month.
After we posted our “Throwback Thursday” story featuring a photo of a little girl named Simone Farber in Central Park around 1977, one of her teachers at Columbia Grammar recognized her. Second-grade teacher Patty Koenigsberg wrote “WOW! I spotted Simone immediately. I was her second grade teacher and hope we can touch base. I’d love to give her a hug!”
She got that hug when the two met up at Patty’s Upper West Side home earlier this month. Simone, now 47, lives in LA, but remembers her old teacher and the neighborhood fondly: “you’re always an Upper West Sider.”
