102-Year-Old Man Still Working As Valet

NEW YORK, (UPI) — A New York man marked his 102nd birthday surrounded by friends in the neighborhood where he has worked as a valet for 25 years.

Joe Binder, valet at Mario’s Restaurant on Arthur Avenue, said his long life might be a result of being “very nice to people” — and not having any children may be “one of the reasons I’ve stayed stress-free,” the New York Post reported Monday.

“I still drive locally and I just renewed my license so I’m good until I turn 110 years old,” Binder said.

Binder, whose birthday was celebrated by his Arthur Avenue neighbors Sunday with a huge banner stretched across the street, said he was lucky to have made so many friends during his years working for Mario’s.

“Sometimes I think I’m dreaming when I think of how many people love and care for me here on Arthur Avenue,” he said.

Binder said his 48-year-old girlfriend helps keep him young.

“There’s no sex involved, just companionship,” he said, listing dancing as one of their most frequent activities.
