New York City offices will be open Sunday, July 24, so gay couples can wed on the day the state’s marriage equality law takes effect.
The New York Times reports that the city clerk’s offices in all five boroughs will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. that day and that judges will be available to officiate ceremonies.
