All too soon, we were suddenly back on Liberty Street at the Young Men Olympian Hall. People were everywhere, and it was hard to move, but the spirit of joy was evident, even amongst the tired musicians. The members of the Furious Five climbed up to the railing of their annex behind the hall, so that their pictures could be taken in their costumes. People had run into relatives or friends that they hadn’t seen in months, and their laughter filled the streets. Even the police, uniformed and on horseback. were laughing and interacting with neighborhood people they knew.
