happilicious new year! and shana tova if youre a chosid!



NYC on new years eve is......simply fascinating....! for lack of a better word. Im still in awe....well ok...the explanation for that is....it was my first time Ive actualy experienced it first hand. Ive celebrated new years every year, but never made it to manhattan. It was realy amazing! lots of fun! and very gross! I witnessed too much vomit in one night...and yes on the subway as well! eww!


Anyway, ill let you in on my little story...and the experience I had in NYC that evening..

Lets start with 10 pm, two hours prior to the ball drop. Times square was mobbedddddddd with ppl to say the least. The temperature was frigid.....but...man! the spirit down there! ive never seen aything like it!
I was lucky enough to have had the sense that night, to have gotten dressed appropiatly for the weather....encouraging myself...that i'd rather look interesting and be warm, then look a little less trendy, and "litteraly" freeze my ass off. There was NO HEELS that night either. I was litteraly standing on my feet for 8 hours....! yup...! you heard me...! 8 hours! So anyway if you happened to have seen this women in times square with these big chuncky suade boots, and an oversized down coat...then yup...that was me!


....Its 11:59......time has come to start the cowntdown!
Thousands of ppl in unison.......!
Ten...Nine...Eight...Seven...Six...Five...Four...Three...Two...One...
BAM!
The ball drops......fireworks lite up the sky....and then comes shouts of..........
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
How spectacular is that?!

After that, we hit the clubs.... it was prettay awesome!!
I must add...I stayed sober all night...and I feel very good bout myself....I have to say, I never enjoyed as much as i did now...being sober! I was able to be aware and observe of what was going on around me....and Im actualy left with memories...instead of not remembering a goddamn thing.

Heres my nightmare with a happy ending....
we called it a night at 430 am....and took the train to retrieve our car that was parked uptown.
To make a very long story short.........we got lost in the middle of harlem...in the rain...with no train station in sight...no money for a cab...drentched...exhausted...about to give up...when we spotted and approached this african american guy getting out of his silver polished toyota...and asked him if he can direct us to the nearest train station...which could of meant walking another 5 blocks in the pouring rain....
Anyway........guess what?! your totaly not expecting to hear this...and neither did I: this guy reaches for his wallet, and pulls out 6 bucks for a cab, handing it to us, saying: "happy new year", and "god bless"! and wishing us "shalom" upon leaving! How this guy knew we were jewish...im still wondering to this very moment....
I named him "the angel of harlem"

    WOW, I was never actually in Times Square at New Years midnight. I did see it on TV though and boy, it looked awesome. Regarding your Angel of Harlem, there are many nice black people and horrible white people...I hate to stereotype!

    Your Nightmare is precisely why I dont go into the city for New years.NYE happens also to be my birthday so double delight on that one ;).

    In my opinion,Manhattan is not the place to be on New years eve.

    1.Its a huge tourist trap and everything is way overpriced just for that night too.

    2.Transportation is a nightmare as you said.That can kill a good time real fats ,when u are waiting all drunk and f'd up for a train wich shows up after 1.5 hours.


    This year I went to Park Slope,very mellow ,live band and only spent 70 dollars,all on drinks for me and my wife.

    Definitely helps to be a girl. No dude's gonna toss me $6 for a cab. Actually I probably wouldn't give another guy $6 for a cab either. Although once, in Cleveland, I did give a guy $10 to, allegedly, help pay off a ticket to get the boot off his car because he was travelling with a bunch of students and they needed to leave to go back home. I'm gullible like that.
