The Pyramid Club at 101 Avenue A was where I spent my Sunday nights in the mid-late 80's. This was where the socially conscious drag shows appeared, wacky performers, and Wigstock was born. And it's where I found my first group of friends. I have such great memories of those nights. I'm excited (and very pleasantly surprised, actually) that this building is up for landmark status. It deserves it.

Luxury development is radically changing the face and faces of New York City. The middle class, small businesses and artists are being priced out at an alarming rate. You can’t stop development, so how then do you preserve the things that make this city one of the most unique places in the world?
