1. What does legendary performer Lucille Ball have in common with NYPL’s landmark 42nd Street building? They are both 100 this year. Lucy’s birthday was yesterday, so in celebration we thought we’d share this candid photo of her from the Billy Rose Theatre Collection at our Library for the Performing Arts. We’d also thought we’d share one of her amazing quotes: “The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” Enjoy!
