Up to 2000 New Yorkers rallied to show support for Paris Saturday in the wake of Friday’s attacks. Mayor Bill deBlasio spoke, people added their names to an impromptu memorial, and the crowd sang the Marseillaise. “I think it’s important for us to stay together and remain calm,” 22-year-old Andrew Congee told me. “To show how strong the French country is and how important it is for us to enjoy life.”
