New York | Thursday, June 28th, 2012
The fond Nora Ephron remembrances written by notable New Yorkers continue to pile up, with Mayor Bloomberg joining the chorus. Bloomberg posted a brief tribute to Ephorn on his website, recognizing the prolific writer, director and quintessential New Yorker’s mark on publishing, Hollywood and the city. “The loss of Nora Ephron is a devastating one for New York City’s arts and cultural community,” the post says. “From her earliest days at New York City’s newspapers to her biggest Hollywood successes, Nora always loved a good New York story, and she could tell them like no one else. The books, movies and plays that she set in the world’s greatest city are classics that will be enjoyed for generations, but New York City will miss Nora very much.”
Ephron, best known for her wry essays and films including When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Julie & Julia, died from a rare and complicated form of leukemia on Tuesday. A funeral is planned for July 9.
