      That first design is beautiful. I have heard some odd things about Times Square. Like imagine having to stand some place for 12 hours. And when people have to go, there's no place to go so they...

      I'm living vicariously through your article. I was lucky enough to grow up in NYC, which is quite an experience, particularly around holidays like New Years. I've become something of a quiet homebody on New Year's Eve in the last decade but some of these sound like such exciting trips. I've gone to Disney World a couple times, it's pretty great there too. I wouldn't mind trying New Orleans some day. Great hub, Happy New Year!

      NYC will always be # 1 for me. During my 5 years in that city as a student, I saw all 5 new year evening fireworks. Truly an awesome experience for me that was.

      Thank you for sharing an article in a timely manner.
