Would I do New Year’s Eve in New York City, standing there for hours to watch a ball drop.
My claustrophobia and fight or flight instincts kick in just looking at the sea of humanity all crushed together. No way to get out.
I’ll sit here in my recliner wearing my “go no further than the mailbox in them” leggings and bunny slippers. With plenty of space around me.

@gidgetgh, I will be joining you. No way would I stand there all day with those crowds. I prefer to be in my own home, can watch it on tv if I am still awake, and have food and a clean bathroom. My needs are few.

and once you get in there, if you do have to leave to go to the bathroom, that's it - you're not getting back in.
Not my idea of fun, it never was something I ever wanted to see in person.
I won't watch it on TV. As my daughter and I said, if you've seen one ball drop you've seen them all.

I’ve lived in downstate New York my entire life & never had a desire to attend the ball drop.Way to crowded & cold.Not to mention you have to arrive hours early to get a good spot.When nature calls you’re in trouble. If you leave to find a bathroom the police will not let you back in to the area. Since 9/11 the security is through the roof. JMO but just not worth the hassle!!
