A light dinner last night around 7 pm, and then we schlepped up Eighth Avenue with mobs of people gathered on corners and sitting curbside and on sidewalks in hopes that this would be a good enough vantage point to see the fireworks. For whatever reason the bulls were blocking off almost all side streets leading to the Hudson. The exception was 23rd Street so that’s where we made our left turn. We would up a block or so past 10th Avenue.
