Laura Schroff Discusses Chance Encounter With NYC Homeless Man In New Book

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In 1986, Laura Schroff was on her way to work in Manhattan when she noticed a young homeless boy named Maurice Mazyck panhandling.

At first, she walked by. But then she decided to turn around and buy him a meal.

More than 25 years later, this chance encounter has led to a special friendship and the story is chronicled in the book “An Invisible Thread.”

The two of them sat down with CBS2’s Cindy Hsu.
