Brooke Astor died this afternoon at age 105. She's the personification of the word "lady". Gracious, charming and giving. New York City would not be the place that it is today, culturally and philathropically, without the generosity of Mrs. Astor. Current New York "socialites" should take a page from her book and do things for others less fortunate. Rest In Peace, Mrs. Astor.
