The Lonely Death of George Bell - The New York Times

"Each year around 50,000 people die in New York, some alone and unseen. Yet death even in such forlorn form can cause a surprising amount of activity. Sometimes, along the way, a life’s secrets are revealed."



One of the most important (and viral) news stories of the year is N.R. Kleinfield's story of George Bell, a solitary man who died alone in his NewYork apartment and was not discovered for several days.  Kleinfield writes about the many, many city services called into action.  The diligence and grace of all involved, including Kleinfield, is very touching.
