The 24-minute-long video, which will be available from noon to midnight on the Library’s website, includes a list of the names of many New Yorkers who died of AIDS; the list of names continues long after the music climaxes and ends in a silent memorial to the friends and family members lost to a pandemic that continues to this day. AIDS has killed more than 40 million people.

Generation next: Baker Falls will bring together a cafe, bar and the Knitting Factory at the former Pyramid Club on Avenue A
In order to get our bearings in our post-pandemic "new normal," a thoughtful reset of this program is necessary, with the allocation of the appropriate resources to protect safety and enforce rules. The City Council should hold a fair hearing to give the public the opportunity to weigh in on the future of the program, in a way that maximizes its potential for businesses and protects the quality of life of residents.The makeshift dining enclosures we see that are worn down and immovable are not reflective of the path forward. The lack of enforcement of the temporary program has led to excessive garbage and pests, narrowed sidewalks, and noise late into the night. These impacts on neighborhoods are undeniable, and can be addressed with meaningful reforms, strict enforcement, and straightforward guidelines that support small businesses without disrupting our communities.
Streetsblog noted that a second public hearing likely isn't happening.
