To begin our series of special episodes about Cherry Grove that we will be posting over our Summer Vacation, we thought it might be a good introduction to first explore the queer communities that we’ve created in New York City, which have directly impacted the life of Fire Island.
Hosted by: Parker Sargent
Produced by: koitz
Guest: Gil Neary and Daniel Nardicio
Parker welcomes New York City realtor Gil Neary to discuss his experiences with the ebb and flow of gayborhoods in Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs. From cruising Christopher Street to bar hoping in Hells Kitchen and partying in Fire Island, Gil has seen it all. Then the King of New York City nightlife Daniel Nardicio joins us to ponder the power of "the gay bar" in helping to forge queer communities and the idea that gay men might be the biggest problem of all for the gentrification of many urban areas.
