ues disco party
upper east side
Hill Krishnan, an adjunct professor at New York University and underdog candidate in the race to succeed Councilwoman Jessica Lappin in her Upper East Side seat, can dance. And, in a 2006 YouTube video entitled “Indian Disco Dancer,” he brings it to the streets of Manhattan.
Dressed in shiny disco-themed clothing, Mr. Krishnan strolls around doing chops and kicks as surprised onlookers gaze on. He eventually switches locations and ends up dancing both in a field and shirtless on the beach.
At a recent forum for New York University, British Prime Minister David Cameron fielded a question from Hill Krishnan, a City Council candidate for the Upper East Side.
Mr. Krishnan, an adjunct professor at NYU in global affairs, first wanted to know what the United Kingdom was doing to reduce its nuclear stockpile, and second, what advice Mr. Cameron would be able to provide him for his first political campaign.
The race to replace Councilwoman Jessica Lappin just got a tad more crowded today when attorney Nico Minerva officially registered a campaign committee for her seat. Ms. Lappin is expected to run for Manhattan Borough President, leaving her seat vacant for aspiring City Council Members in the Upper East Side.
Mr. Minerva said the only thing that could stop his campaign is if Ms. Lappin were to run for reelection.
“I’m a big fan of Jessica Lappin, I’m not going to run against her,” he told The Politicker this evening. But besides that, he said, “I’m all in.”
