The New Years Eve was the first big game day of the year for many, with a massive party on the island of Puerto Rico and a huge amount of fireworks.
We’ve rounded up some of the most important stories from that first day to help you get your groove back.
The New York Times: It started as a party.
It ended as a game.
That’s how Puerto Ricans celebrated the New Year on January 1, 2018.
The New York City Police Department: The city’s police department was overwhelmed by the festive atmosphere, and it was a bit of a mess.
But, as one of the few police departments in the country that doesn’t own a cell phone, the department’s officers were able to make use of their personal cell phones to make calls and text messages to a wider audience.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo: On the night of January 1st, the New York governor took the stage to make a big speech about the state of the economy.
He called for an economic boom and a strong recovery.
Cuomo was right.
The economy was humming, and that helped the economy bounce back from the economic recession of 2016.
“What we were able [to] do was, to be a little more creative and a little bit more daring with the economic message, and I think that’s what happened,” Cuomo said in his speech.
In New York, there was a real sense of community and celebration.
The Times: The New Yorkers that I know were very supportive, and we had a lot of people in the streets, people who didn’t know anybody from the previous night who they knew who had been there, who had had the fireworks, and who had a good time.
But there were some people who felt the party was being mismanaged.
As one New Yorker told the Times, “I think the party should have been a celebration of the people, the people that were there.
There were people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, who were celebrating, but not the ones who were really celebrating the celebration of our people.”
