The New York Times: To Each Her Own
January 22, 2009 - Suzanne Slesin, The New York Times
"Roselyn Leibowitz and Catherine Redmond have been friends for years, and as friends do, they would often talk about how they imagined their futures. They would discuss how they wanted to live when they were older, and what would make the best balance in a living situation. Both are artists, and agreed they wanted companionship but a great deal of privacy.
"Ms. Leibowitz, who is now 54, and who proudly calls herself “a spinster,” and Ms. Redmond, 65, who is divorced, would often meet for coffee or dinner in the ’90s because they both lived in TriBeCa and shared a work space. “We would sit for hours,” Ms. Leibowitz recalled. “That’s when Catherine and I really became closer friends.”"
