REAL New York Heroes

As we approach the 4th Anniversary of You-Know-What I'd like to take the opportunity to honor the memory of some of the great New Yorkers who really made a difference in our town - especially those who are lesser-known. We'll salute a man who (literally) cleaned up NYC by founding what is now the Sanitation Department, a nurse who helped revolutionize home health care and a host of others.

Anyone wish to nominate an unsung hero?
