Good morning, East Village.

During the weekend, a reader, Micki Goldberg, commented about our story on the death of the neighborhood icon known as Annie, who for years worked as a vendor at the Fulton Fish Market. Although Annie was a friend to many, few knew her real name – Gloria Wasserman – or the details of her life before she came to the market.

“The story of South St. Annie is so fasinating it wants to make you know more about her,not the life in the East Village only but her life as Gloria Wasserman,” Ms. Goldberg wrote.” She chose to become another personality in life, what drove her to this ?”

On Sunday, The Times offered a rich appraisal of Annie’s life that is well worth reading. Be sure to check it out.
