Gay Travel: Fire Island Reignited – Gayapolis

The Pavilion, a nightclub that burned to the ground in a November 2011 fire that destroyed a quarter of Fire Island Pines’ commercial district, reopened in June.


Karen Boss, a year-round resident of Fire Island Pines, told the Washington Blade earlier this month during an interview in her office that overlooks the hamlet’s harbor that the Pavilion’s reopening has had “a major psychological” impact because it is “the first thing you see when you get off the ferry.” Her husband, Walter Boss, who is a member of the all-volunteer Fire Island Pines Fire Department, agrees.


“It’s a connection to our community,” Walter Boss says. “It’s an attraction that brings people to Fire Island.” Former Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, who frequently visits Fire Island, also concurs. “The reopened Pavilion restores a much-needed spark,” he told the Blade.
