A photograph of 113-year-old Goldie Steinberg from a much earlier time in her life. Goldie came to the U.S. in 1930 from Russia and lived for many years with her husband in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. She then went on to live independently after he died, only moving to the center in 2005.

Goldie Steinberg was born on Oct. 30, 1900 in Romania. After immigrating to the United States in 1923, Steinberg lived in Bensonhurst until she was 104 years old. In 2004, she moved to the Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Long Beach, where staff have hosted a birthday party for her every year since.
