THE BRONX - Bronx resident Joseph Binder turns 104 years old today and he gave some insight into his long life.

Binder says he remembers the first bathrooms moving into houses instead of backyards back in 1910.

He also recalls all of the jobs he had. He was a cook in the Navy, a cement worker, a carpenter and a messenger for Western Union.

In his youth, he made $18 a week, when a train ride would cost 5 cents and two frankfurters and a root beer cost 15 cents.

He says it's important to be nice to people, and that while you may get hurt along the way, it's important to turn your cheek. Binder says people should stay away from stress because that's what kills you.
