True stories and accidental snapshots about undying love, old lesbians, dementia, mothers & daughters, and a disappearing city.

In this engaging new collection of personal essays and full-color photographs, Moed tells true stories of caring for her mother Florence, an angry lesbian and Julliard-trained pianist who stumbles into dementia on the Lower East Side. This funny, poignant memoir asks questions both familiar and touching: "What happened to the neighborhood?" and "What happened to my mom?"

It Was Her New York is for anyone who has ever experienced the aging of a parent, the gentrification of a neighborhood, or the unexpected discovery of stifled love and hidden sexuality.
