  1. Hi guys. I’m Bob, a 66 year old retired gay male living happily in Clearwater, FL. I came across this site online and decided to check it out. I’ve just finished reading all 10 episodes and I realized I made the right decision. I’ve never been to the City, but I have some connections with it. My gay cousin, with whom I was playmates in our teen years in Indiana, died of AIDS there in 1994. He lived near where the HighLine is now, 22nd Ave & 10th St. One of my hopes is that some day I can travel there and just stand in front of where he lived. That probably sounds weird, but it will be my way of paying belated tribute to the link we lost so long ago. I also have a friend here, Rocco Piacente, who lived in the Park Slope area, which you mention in one episode. He is a photographer and has given me some wonderful pics of the City, including some beautiful shots of the Piers.
    I will get there some day, I’m sure, but the tone of your site allows me a glimpse of what it’s like to live there. Yes, I’m 40+ years too late, but I’m already enjoying living vicariously through you and my friend Rocco. I look forward to upcoming episodes.
    Thanks so much to both of you

    1. Bob- what a terrific, sweet note. We are so happy you enjoy our project and hope you’ll continue reading! You absolutely must come visit NYC–the winter is beautiful but quite the opposite of comfortable Florida. We suggest mid May or mid October. 🙂

      Our community here is a strong one. You’ll certainly feel the camaraderie when visiting.

      Take care–wishing you the best. Thanks again!
      Adam and Sam
