ments on the waterfront, stretches approximately  1.3  miles  along  the
East River from Atlantic Avenue to north of the Manhattan Bridge; and

beautiful children, all of whom feel privileged to be a part of her life
and rejoice in her achievements; and

ual for the benefit of others which Regina Myer has displayed throughout
her life; and
