Night of Fire Party Organized by

2007 brought New York City some fabulous nightlife with new venues, new party series, and ridiculous good times. There were the long lines outside of Studio B for good times like “Down and Derby” with heavenly roller skating rink debauchery. There was summer fun at The Yard in Brooklyn on Gawanus Canal. There were consistent festivities at Hiro with GBH and great bands to check out at 205 Club. Spots like APT, Nublu, and Pianos were our mainstay for guaranteed good times in Manhattan. Festivals like CMJ, Siren, and Crown Point exhausted us and left us inspired and artistically satisfied. I’m barely even scratching the surface here but I want to give thanks for the hard working promoters and hard partying people of this great city for their dedication to the great and most honorable acts of celebration and outright hedonism. 2007 was kind.

Night of Fire Party Organized by

This said, my favorite parties of 2007 were outside of venues. There was One Night of Fire organized by It was a ridiculous good time with costumes and marching bands in the subway station and raucousness on the train! The mobile party traveled to Coney Island (causing some claustrophobia for a few regular straphangers on the Q along the way) and culminated in a fire show on the beach with dancers, bands, and corks a popping! This happened in July, when a beach party was a much better idea, weather-wise, and was organized for Bastille Day.

Subway Party on the L Line

The other great train party I witnessed/ participated in for 2007 was entirely spontaneous! It took place at the L Union Square station post Halloween parade and involved a subway drummer, just “busking” his own business when some teenagers celebrating a birthday came along and broke into improvised dance party USA. It was a “Fame” moment and good times for all.

Here’s to fabulous revelry for NYE and for 2008 on the whole, from your friends at New York Cool.
