    I hope everyone is getting ready for parties and new years fun. Here in Times Square it's a bit different. Especially if you live here. The crowds already started piling up 2 days ago. What would normally take me 4 minutes to walk from NBC at 30 Rock to my place now takes 25-30 minutes.
    I'll never understand why people want to come here to TS for New Year's Eve. And especially now that you can't even have a drink or champaign.
    The side streets are all baricaded, you never see this stuff on tv so if I even want to go to the deli god forbid I don't take my i.d. I can't back on my block.
    Even still it's kind of exciting and fun.
    Just wanted to take a few seconds to wish you all the best and happiest of nrw years. Hey this next one has GOT to be better than this one!!!
    Hugs all around and have fun popping your corks!

    I'd love to come and visit you with some champagne in hand.

    Happy New Year 2012, friend!

    I'd love to be there though, in the craziness. After watching the film 'new years eve', I have to experience the ball drop for myself one day!

    So what's it called? NoTimeSoPark= North of Times Square South of Central Park.
    My personal favorite is NoTiffSoSher - North of Tiffany's South of The Sherry Netherland.
