To celebrate our silver anniversary, the City Limits staff compiled some up-to-date snapshots of the fighters, movements and communities that have moved the city forward over the last 25 years, from housing court brides to East Village rooftop windmills.
A candlelight vigil organized by Casita Maria, a settlement house on Simpson Avenue, tried to offer comfort and hope after September 11.
