Upper West Sider Celebrates 110th Birthday

One of the oldest New Yorkers lives on the Upper West Side.

CBS New York announced the recent birthday celebration of now 110 year old Josephine Melecio, who celebrated with her 86 year old daughter on Friday.

Josephine’s daughter, Shirley Koehler, told the news outlet that her mother used to love traveling and dancing with her husband.

Born in Puerto Rico, Melecio came to NYC while she was young. She first worked at a factory and later at a nursing home in Queens, avoiding retirement until her 90s.
