11. Leave a downtown Saturday night party and walk for 15 minutes through the Financial District to get to our subway — without seeing another soul the whole way. It was fucking eerie.

12. Walk the old 42nd Street. We saw bad crimes happen on 42nd Street. We don’t think it was better, but we remember it.

13. Go to many, many dot-com parties (always free alcohol!) — all at the “coolest” venues — in the late 1990s. So much geek money. Millions one day, nothing the next.

15. Go to Yankee games at the old stadium in the 1990s.

There is NO comparison between the current Yankee Stadium atmosphere and the feel of the games in the mid- to late 1990s. None. I’m not a Yankees fan (Mariners). In fact, I hate the Yankees. But that was the best place and best time to see a baseball game. period.

16. Spend a blackout night in The Chelsea. (We stayed in the “Nautilus” room, where everything — the lamp, the bed, the rug — was shaped like a nautilus shell.)
