Hello, I'm planning a visit (from Boston) to New York to meet a long distance friend for New Year's. We're staying in the East Village in another friend's apartment. Do you have any recommendations for (moderately priced) bars, etc. in the area that might be fun but not total lunacy? Maybe in the outer boroughs, even? Dives are fine if they're of the non-depressing variety. I've never been in New York on New Year's before. Thanks in advance.
