Social workers at Mary Manning Walsh nursing home

Social workers at Mary Manning Walsh nursing home and lawyers for MFY Legal Services battled for almost two years to get Tracy Morisada, 81, back into her Upper East Side studio apartment after she was severely injured in a bike accident and her landlord evicted her while she was recovering in a nursing home and unable to defend herself in court. Her lifetime of personal belongings were sent to a storage unit and eventually auctioned off. The only item she retains from before her July 27, 2013 accident are the red sneakers and casual clothes she was wearing at the time she was plowed down. (Credit: Sheila Anne Feeney)
