meowrson welles says: instead of going to a bar or a nightclub or to your friend's awful, stupid party off the g line which isn't even kind of convenient to your house at ALL, buy a stock of liquor and "party supplies" and ride aimlessly on the s.s. staten island ferry. you'll get a view of all of the fireworks, you'll be on a boat, you'll have booze and hopefully at least one friend--what more do you need? there will be a bonus in that no tourists ever have set foot on the staten island ferry, because wtf are tourists going to do in staten island? if you actually decide to get off the boat, walk left on that main street a bit and there is actually a bar there that isn't terrible, as well, but really let's not push this too much and pretend you're actually going to get off in staten island.
nycers, tune in next week for more meowrson welles recommendations!
