Pick up a hooker, contract an STD or two...then again, you could do that anytime.

This is the most amazing thing I've seen all day.

New Year's Day I may be homeless and cold.

??? We'll be in touch. I need to figure out what exactly is happening.

Yeeeah... Know any good street corners Blake and I can curl up in? Best date ever if you ask me. :-\

If you want to venture into Brooklyn, there is a place called Junior's Restaurant which has the most AMAZING cheesecake.  (Junior's actually has outposts in Grand Central Station and Times Square as well, if you want amazing cheesecake in Manhattan, but I prefer the original.)

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Junior's. It's decent but not the revelation I had heard. Then again, I'm not a cheesecake connoisseur. Others might dig it.

If you want something cheaper than a show, movie theaters are open and are great for warming up for a few hours.  There are big ones at Times Square, Union Square and near Penn Station.

The IFC Theater is right off the West 4th St. stop too. They always have good stuff. I saw Eraserhead there a couple of weeks ago. Good times. I think the Zeitgeist isn't terribly far away either but I don't remember the exact location.

And if you end up really lost, don't be afraid to ask for directions.  We don't bite unless you ask nicely and I don't know a single New Yorker who would pass up the chance to dazzle a needy tourist with their knowledge of NYC geography.

I'm telling you all, New Yorkers are big pussycats. (Well, 9 out of 10.) Just be nice and speak clearly, and you'll do fine.

It'll all work out. Trust me.

Once you have their attention,
New Yorkers are most helpful.
Just don't be timid,
and getting their attention is easy.

Hmm, New Years Day?  I recommend calling everyone you were with the night before and apologizing then laying in bed til 8pm clutching your stomach.

On any other day I would advise you to go to central park and check out Thoth.

i asked because we each have different favorites,
and i knew you all would come up with great things to
do that i didn't know of!

everyone thanks for your ideas

girlwithacameranyc i'll check out out 7A,
next time i'm in the east village

billh thoth wasn't there, but i'll check back
i enjoyed the walk from 5th and 58th - olmstead and
calvert knew how to design ceremonial entrances!

MASS i hadn't been by strawberry fields since
shortly after it was dedicated
it is still one of the most moving memorials,
i know of
i don't remember the park benches,
and i certainly don't remember the
little metal memorial plaques on them
the first few i read were to dead from the music world,
which seemed ok
but then it became obvious that
anyone could "buy" one for any reason
i understand the park needs donations,
but they should have not done it at
Strawberry Fields

VipersGratitude thanks for the chuckles!

I like how the train line from NYC to where I need to get in Jersey to sleep at night DOESN'T RUN ON WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS.

New Year's Day I may be homeless and cold.

This is why I mostly don't go out late in the winter, as for whatever god forsaken reason, apparently anyone who lives near Hackensack between the hours of 1am and 7am CLEARLY would not want a ride home on mass transit.  One damn bus at 3am would be great...otherwise we wind up pulling the 'long waffle' in whatever diner we hit (the one on 34th street is friendly and used the oddities wandering in to hang out from the cold, and Yaffas is still awesome in the witching hours) to spread out the time and nurse food until mass transit home starts up again.
