Man Tells Heartbreaking Story of Grandfather’s Lost Building
If you could tell any story about someone you love — either happy, sad, embarrassing or funny — through a short video, which one would you pick?
StoryCorps is a nonprofit that turns people’s stories into animated shorts. The newest episode, titled “Sunday at Rocco’s,” shares the touching story of a New York man’s grandfather who immigrated from Italy to New York in search of a better life. After working as an apartment complex superintendent for 18 years, during which time the majority of his family moved into the building, the city notified him that the apartment would be demolished to make way for a newer housing structure.
