52-Year-Old Prostitute Still Working

An article in this weekend’s Sunday New York Times explores the life of a 52-year-old prostitute who has worked the notorious Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx for nearly her entire adult life. Barbara Terry, who has four children and suffers from diabetes, which caused all of her teeth to fall out, depended on her mother to help her raise and watch over her four children while she hit the track every night trying to support them. ‘When they were old enough to understand, I would tell them the truth,’ Terry, whose daughter and three sons are now grown, told the New York Times. “I’d say, ‘This is how I’m supporting you.’ For me it’s a business, a regular job.’ That job, which many would look at as unacceptable, landed her in jail more than 100 times, but it also gave her the ability to buy a home in upstate New York, where she plans to retire in a year.” w/ photo
