C.I.D. WAS FORMED FOR THE PURPOSE PROVIDING THE DANCERS WITHRAGE DID IN THE EARLY 70'S
PROMOTING UNITY & SAFETY AT OUR EVENTS



There are so many anecdotes, stories
that are told these days about the Paradise Garage. Those that never went offer up fantasies; those that went are zealous to share their experiences. I can only say that it really was all that they say it was and more. From the early construction parties to the celebrations of Keith Haring the club offered an escape from the day-to-day grind of NYC and allowed one to soar to the sounds of a music that swept one's soul.

The sound system coupled with Larry Levan's ability to select tracks that pierced one deep in the heart made a visit to "Paradise" seem truly possible. Additionally, friendships were established - the feeling that one had a family waiting for you every week, soulful bonds that would never be broken. Like all families, we were different yet the same. We sought each other out for consolation, uplift, and Larry would offer the honey and sweetness with the music that he played.

I'm grateful that I was able to experience the magic. I began in 1977 and went to the penultimate party. I remember walking down the ramp as I was leaving and reflecting that this was going to be the last time. My eyes got a little watery and I left, feeling the thump thump of the base and knowing that there was never going to be a space like the Paradise Garage.
