NY State Senate livestream: Watch history unfold in real time

Marriage will be the last item on the calendar. These people will make history tonight.

UPDATE @ 8:39 PM, some timing info, via State of Politics:

All signs point to a relatively early vote. There’s a sense the Senate Republicans want to quickly move through the vote and many “no” votes won’t be making lengthy statements.

One Democratic lawmaker says the marriage vote won’t come until 9 at the earliest, with a final vote at around 11.

And, turn down the sound during the recess. They’re playing bad musak, but when they come back…it’s the marriage bill!. Listen for Senate Bill 5857.

A crowd is gathering in front of the Stonewall Inn. Scott Wooledge is there — and taking photos:
And, here’s one from Paul Yandura, who said the crowd is getting huge:
