Tributes: Nora Ephron

Leonard Lopate and Nora Ephron in the WNYC studios in 2010 (Melissa Eagan)

Nora Ephron was many things – a screenwriter and director, responsible for “Sleepless in Seattle,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” and “Julie and Julia.”  She loved writing, and came on the show a number of times over the years for her books I Feel Bad About My Neck, and I Remember Nothing,” as well as for her play, “Love, Loss & What I Wore.”  She was also a very funny, and very generous person, who volunteered to be on the show on the spur of the moment, should a guest cancel.  But she had her priorities: one of the last times we invited her to be a guest, she said that her son was performing in a band that night, and she had to be there.  She died at the age of 71. You can listen to her conversations with Leonard below.

Has anyone mentioned the loss of St. Vincent's hospital to the Rudin condo plan at 12th Street and 7th Avenue. Our neighborhood has no more hospital!
