Remember, you can't leave the pens and come back to your original location. Between noon and 1pm to get a good spot. NYPD will direct you where to enter the pens, you don't really get to select your entrance. Be prepared for no bathrooms, no place to sit, no food or drink other than what you bring , and no way to leave and return. Once you leave your spot that's it.

I found myself, at midnight, crawling through piles of to-do lists and smooching the unadulterated anxiety that in less than two weeks, I a girl who had never seen snow and was infamously known for being a winter-hater would be moving to the arctic tundra. To a city where people got lost and never found, for days, weeks, their whole lives. A place that warns us of the damage that will occur if we go to sleep too early, if we don't push ourselves, stare chaos in it's tea cup eyes and decide to do nothing. Because the chaos that weaves through our lives doesn't ever fully stop.

As of Tuesday, scofflaws who commit certain quality-of-life violations — including urinating, boozing or blasting loud music in public — will get little more than a slap on the wrist. The theory maintains that cracking down on minor offenses prevents more serious crimes.
Forget fashion; think warmth. Layer long johns or thermals under the warmest clothes you own, then cover those with a wind- and water-resistant top layer. Bring hand warmers, gloves, extra socks, a toasty hat, and maybe even a Pussy Riot-style balaclava. Or stay out until sunrise and eat a handful of Skittles -- what am I, your mother?
