Sundays at Rocco's

StoryCorps animated shorts feature different real life stories courtesy of folks from all walks of life.  Nicholas Petron decided to tell the story of his immigrant grandfather, Rocco.  Rocco was the superintendent to an NYC apartment building, and later purchased the building.  Sadly, the building becomes condemned and is scheduled for destruction.  Sadly the destruction of the building holds an even deeper meaning for the family. It's an interesting glimpse into a particular moment in someone's life, and reminds me that everyone everywhere has a story.
