Anna Sokolow, Choreographer
"It was on St. Marks Place that we lived and it was always the same kind of an apartment. It was a kind of railroad flat with the toilet in the hall. My mother was a real working-class woman. It was very difficult, very difficult. Imagine a mother of four, working in a factory, coming home and taking care of four children and a husband."
Margaret Murphy and Lucille Rhodes
