Kevin Charles Berger, of Needham, Massachusetts, passed away on July 8, 2017. He was a resident of the West Village for over 35 years. His love for the neighborhood and the City could be witnessed in the enthusiasm he showed when guiding visiting friends and family through the City streets. Kevin had a passion for jazz and was often seen with loved ones at local spots such as the Village Vanguard and Blue Note. He was also a longtime member of the Film Forum, where he enjoyed many independent films.
Kevin appreciated a good glass of wine or a Bloody Mary with EXTRA celery. He also supported many local eateries—Morandi and Extra Virgin were among his favorites. Kevin often said that he disliked traveling because everything you could possibly need is right here in New York City. He will be missed throughout the Village, but the adoration he had for the City will live on in other New Yorkers.
