Peter Lovenheim is a rich man in Rochester, New York suburbs. In February 2000 a suicide in a street house involving a medical party took place. Two kids ran out of the house after 10 o'clock, shouting that their father had murdered his mother. No one knew the family next door, which lived there for seven years. Lovenheim embarrassed that a 36-street street had no sense of community. He wanted to know the people whose homes went through every day, in addition to their profession or the number of children. He wanted to know the depth and essence of their experiences. Levenheim knew from their childhood dormitories and summer house exchanges that they were awake in their bed, cooked food in the kitchen, and walked in the neighborhood, provided that the interview could not be in itself.

He once lived in New York City and was a successful pianist and harpist. He walked once and fell. He turned to the car across the street and went to the ambulance.
