  1. We sure could use more gays in Tribeca. Yay for the dance!

  2. I think we also need more Tribeca pride- support your local merchants, eat at your neighborhood restaurants, enjoy the beautiful architecture and character of our neighborhood before it slips away never to be seen again outside of old photographs….
