World Trip 1999-2000: Day 53 – New York City, USA

Saturday 1 January 2000
 New York Cinema, ‘Stand Up New York’ comedy

Despite no drinking the night before I still felt like I had a hangover with very little energy after a very long night and then waking in a new century 🙂  The major pain was having to change hostel rooms once again which meant having to check out and wait to check back in.  As a result we visited Times Square again and watch the massive clean up job already underway.

To kill time and experience another typical New York event we paid $9.50 (expensive!) to watch ‘Galaxy Quest’ which was very funny and enjoyable.  Cinemas in New York are expensive but also an event, the cinemas we visited had seats like business class on a good airline.

Later that night we attended the ‘Stand Up New York‘ comedy venue. We avoided the cover charge of $12.00 as hostel guest get in free but you still must buy two drinks (total $15).  The five comedians were truly brilliant, bringing tears of laughter from Jon and me.  Uncensored live New York comedy is a must for any visit.  A great night out and a great start to the new century.
