Upper West Side woman celebrates 100th birthday

UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- An Upper West Side woman celebrated a major milestone on Sunday - she turned 100 years young!

Arlene Brauer once sang in Vaudeville, Carnegie Hall and even to the troops during World War II.



She says her secret for living a long, happy life is her faith.



"Somebody asked me the other day, 'where's your cane?', I said 'don't push me, I don't need a cane, let me walk just like you're walking'," Brauer said.

Happy Birthday, Arlene!
