The Renovation of 59 Lucy Lane
The Rapaports' are super fans of Lucille Ball and loved the opportunity to meticulously restore her childhood home in 2005. Mary Rapaport says she fell in love with 'I Love Lucy' as an adult when a bout with a serious illness rendered her bedridden. Lucille's amazing physical comedy and humor inspired her to recovery. Since then, you won't find a bigger fan of the Jamestown, or Celoron, NY, native superstar. This photo, taken on September 23, 2013, is of the project to repair the house's siding. Today, the Rapaport's continue to take care of and upgrade Lucy's home, keeping it as close to original as possible.
