NEW YORK CITY NIGHTLIFE
For those bookishly inclined to conduct full-on reconnaissance and research prior to a casual evening out in NYC—this one’s for you. Or, perhaps you’re just a closet enthusiast for the world’s most vibrant nocturnal landscape—whatever the draw, there’s a plethora of quality literature detailing the bright lights and boozy haunts of NYC.
Any familiar with the unforgivably mundane process of true research knows the quintessential rule to success: cast a wide net. Whether it’s through a smattering of anecdotes, or succinct factual compilations—a true smorgasbord is the key to successfully familiarizing yourself with the subject matter.
Perhaps this past week in nightlife has given us yet another clue as to what our industry does when something goes terribly wrong. I reported earlier in the week on the death of 17 year old Nicole Johns, daughter of an American ambassador, child socialite. As the trail leading up to her death from the 25th floor of a skyscraper in Herald Square led us through her footsteps back to the velvet rope at Tenjune, the city and the blogging world began to buzz about who let her in, who let her drink, who gave her her fake, and who, just who in the world could get this child so drunk in New York City.
