In honor of Albert Einstein’s birthday this week, more than 50 Lantern Hill residents attended a lecture by a fellow resident, Dr. Phil Eisner, titled “Albert Einstein, An Extraordinary Life.”  The talk, held  on March 13, detailed the life of the most influential scientist of the 20th century.

“I enjoy teaching people,” said Eisner, who moved to Lantern Hill with his wife a few months ago from Summit, New Jersey.

This is the third lecture Eisner, a well-known local scientist, has given at the Erickson Living retirement community in New Providence, New Jersey.  Eisner has also presented free lectures on environmental and science issues at local community groups, libraries, NJ retirement homes, and schools.
