Elizabeth A. Harris and Adriane Quinlan, with Alexis Mainland, The New York Times:
Passage of the same-sex marriage bill by New York lawmakers brought dancing in the streets of the West Village on Friday night. Crowds gathered, screamed and embraced in Sheridan Square outside the Stonewall Inn, where the gay rights movement began 42 years ago. Many stood on park benches to get a better view. Gay and lesbian bars in the neighborhood were packed with patrons, and the neighborhood had the feel of jubilant celebration.
