Brooklyn Woman Celebrates 113th Birthday

A woman in Brooklyn, New York is 113-years-old and still partying...

Susannah Jones, who most call "Miss Susie", celebrated her 113th birthday in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday.

The New York Daily News says Jones is New York City's oldest person... and three years younger than the oldest person in the world.

The paper says Jones only wanted a new pair of bedroom slippers for a gift.

She celebrated the milestone with family and other residents at her senior center.

Jones was born in 18-99, four years before the Wright brothers made their first flight.
