New Year’s Eve

When in NY, do you go to Times Square to see the ball drop? For me, no. I don’t really like crowds and the news was predicting a million people packing in. Luckily, we had received an invite to a formal dinner party in Brighton Beach: Little Russia by the Sea. We headed off on the F train until it could go no further east and then took the Q train two stops. After a short walk through what really appear to be Russia, we arrived at our destination. Lots of vodka and homemade food was served and of course, I passed out first, but not before watching the ball drop and dancing with Kelly to Sinatra’s “New York, New York”!

  1. My friend Josh was staying at my place over New Year’s. He walked down to Times Square at 11pm and talked his way in.

    How could you ‘runners’ not partake in the New Year’s Eve race in Central Park?!?! It’s my favorite New York tradition.
