My techie and non-techie view of the world around me.
NYE in NYC; yes, it is Chaos with a capital C. But, that is exactly why you go, right? We thought it was such a spectacular idea and I do not for a second regret going. But with that said, there is truly some planning and considerations you need to keep in mind or you will be cold, hungry and miserable. We were fortunate and had some of the best weather ever for New Years in NYC, and I’m sure that added to both our enjoyment, and the number of people in the crowd. And I didn’t even wear a coat!
The energy that is in that crowd is indescribable. If you are claustrophobic or agoraphobic, this is not the event for you. But to have that New Years kiss in Times Square with a ton (literal) of confetti dropping from overhead…to sing New York New York in New York for the New Year…to see the fireworks over the flashing 2012…to watch and listen to the countdown and ball drop…all of those things you’ve watched on TV, happening WITH you is just so cool.
This is a crowded place, even when it’s not NYE. Make it the big night and it was VERY crowded. If you are annoyed by other people, can’t stand being jostled by (and with) strangers, don’t like loud noise, etc…don’t go, watch it on TV. But if you can make it there, pay attention around you. Enjoy the people watching, the celebration.
