THE Pavilion dance club, a hedonistic playground for three generations of gay men in Fire Island Pines, burned down Monday night, stirring memories in gay communities in New York City and beyond.
Derek Lloyd Saathoff, of the reality show “The A-List: New York”: “It really was a gay paradise. They always played the best music. I always remember the tea dances. If you got separated from members of your party, you would always meet there the next morning and have brunch.”
