Last Call For 2009: Where To Spend Your New Year's Eve In NYC

by SARAH KUNST · December 23, 2009

2009 has been a wild year. We got a new President (Obama), new social media obsession (Twitter) and a film crew became the new hangbag line (we're looking at you Tinsley). It's time for a new decade and a new year... but to make sure you give the past 365 days the send off they deserve we've compiled a list of where to be if you're in the city plus a special shout out to the second home of cool - Miami. Got more parties (this is just a taste, we will be adding more throughout the next few days)? Tip us and we'll let everyone know, until then - Alud Lang Sang...
