Just saw the lights come on at the world trade center


They are red, white and blue.

I am interpreting that as a great big 'right on' for the supremes decision today.

I live in Greenwich Village and saw a wonderful gathering around the Stonewall this afternoon. Great times!

3. I go to church in the village!

 

Must be great to be there tonight.

Stonewall is a great bar to go to but on days like these too many people in a bar is not fun.

7. Sorry


Went down to the gathering with all the politicians giving their speeches and, basically, just said to myself - crap!!!!!!! forgot to bring anything with which to take a picture. saw tons of people using their smartphones - I was just on my way to get something for dinner and had nothing with me.

Lots of press there. Tons of people taking pix and network feeds being sent out.

Still hearing cheers going out right now. Earlier they had a choir singing God Bless America - very moving to hear the last verse (and the land of the free). Giant shout from the crowd.

8. Totally think so


I'm on 7th and Charles. Have a clear view of the Trade Center and Seventh around Sheridan Square.

Girlfriend said that it was probably just for July 4th. I said noooooooooooooo way! Don't know the political persuasions of whoever runs the lights but really think it was in response to the decisions.

9. Ok, West Village. I'm literally a straight line across from you on the East side, 2 blocks from

 

Alphabet city. They could be testing out the lights for the 4th of July but if they're still on now then it's a definite for Supreme Court decision.

15. Fyi for July 12


Not sure if you were aware but the Manhattan-Henge sundown supershow will be that night. Bunch of friends will be doing a righteous happy hour at the Mermaid Inn and then wandering on over to 14th for the show.

Maybe I'll bring some friends by the Mermaid Inn. Always in awe of Manhattan-henge. Sacred geometry.

11. Lovely church


That whole area is really nice.

Remember when they had the fire. So totally sad. Nice that they were able to rebuild.

13. Wow

That's an impressive family history.

Assume that your family were members before then. That was when this area was just farms. Neat.

17. He worked with the teamsters when they worked with horses and than he worked for a company that

 

delivered oil in the Brooklyn and Manhattan area.

My Grandfathers uncle had the last farm in lower Brooklyn when he sold it to developers. They kept the house and barn which they turned into a house and my grandfather settled there until he sold it in the late 70's. He was 93 when he died. As for the Church it was not really farmland in the 1890's but it was at the founding in the early 1820's.
