Larry Kelly, a 64-year-old retired public school teacher who lives on the Upper West Side, was in the hospital for 128 days with Covid-19, including 51 days on a ventilator. When he went home this week, “Miracle Larry” was cheered by friends and neighbors. Kelly had been treated at Mt. Sinai Morningside.
And his favorite spot, Dive Bar on Amsterdam and 96th, still had a sign for him in the window — it said “Let’s Go Miracle Larry.” Owner Lee Seinfeld said he wouldn’t take down the sign until Larry came back.
NBC got video of his return below. Welcome home Larry!
