Audrey Munson. The 1st Supermodel.
The NY Post did a nice little write up about Audrey Munson, who was basically NYC’s first Supermodel. She posed for dozens of statues around the city, dozens which are still watching us walk by. Unfortunately she ended up insane, mixed up in a murder case, and selling silverware door to door in upstate New York before dying at 103 and being burried in an unmarked grave.
Truly an amazing story, and more amazing to see her everywhere around the city and never really know who she is.
I did a short doc about her years ago which is included in the article. Definitely worth a peek if you like interesting stories, tragic endings, and really passionate voice over;)
Here’s the link, do go give it a quick peek.
