I found your article to be riveting. You transported me to that horrible restricting era of baseless shame that i refuse to feel anymore.

I used to work at the Sea Colony in the early 60's. Pete West was bartender and I worked the front and back rooms waiting tables ... do you remember the street address of the Sea Colony? The New Colony (men's gay bar)was opposite the Women's House of Detention ... both establishments were owned and run by Vincente and Sal Cioffi and (I 'think' they were connected guys?)They also owned the 'strip joints', the Italian restaurants, had ties to the Produce and Linen industries supplying the lower West Side from what I can remember. Would love to hear back from you, Joan... my name is Dorothy and I am now an Addictions Specialist ... ironic, isn't it?
