David Peel's August 3rd After-Concert Birthday Party Out Front of The Christodora ...

Yippie singer-songwriter David Peel discovered this announcement of his birthday party taped to Ray's famous avenue A lighted ice cream cones sign last week . He was a bit surprised . He hadn't realized that the party was being advertized .
Everyone is invited . Thanks to Chris Sileo of the Bowery Wine Co. there will be some free pizza . Get there early right after the August 3rd 1988 Tompkins Square Park riot anniversary concert to get some .
The '88 TSP riot icon of East Village gentrification , the Christodora , on Avenue B at 9th street will be the party location .
Be there and celebrate David's birthday and remember the Christodora lobby plants that were liberated and planted out-of-doors in Tompkins Square Park on the morning of August 7th ,1988 .

Dear Bob, thank you for your wonderful extensive and daily coverage of the E. Village, or what's left of it. My name's Boris, I'm a New Yorker and a writer, who is gathering oral histories of E. Village personalities. So far, I have interviewed Jay, Ratbones, and a chess player at TSP named Chris whose been homeless in the area for almost 30 years. I'm also supposed to interview Sid soon. The interviews have been rendered into monologues and profiles and I wonder if you might be interested in taking a look at one? They all trace each person's history as it relates to the neighborhood and the park. My email address is
Thanks again for your diligence.
