      Is this the same woman who taught piano at the 92nd Street Y and had a concert career? Perhaps she is very troubled??

      425 West 59th Street is Mt. Sinai Hospital. She is carrying papers in her hand — maybe a medical report? referral to another doctor? Perhaps the hospital can be of some help tracing her.

      If she was in fact at Mt. Sinai they do discharge people when they’re not always ‘ready’ and without contacting a friend or family member to make sure they get home safely. I hope she is safe and there will be a follow up story.
