9. Activist Bike Ride and Dance Party
The all volunteer non-profit groups of The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space and Time’s Up have teamed up to create a New Year’s Eve event with a purpose. Time’s Up is an environmental organization working to create sustainable and positive changes in New York City for the past thirty one years. Their annual New Year’s Eve bike ride is one way to raise awareness for their causes. This year’s ride starts at 9:30pm in front of the Plaza Hotel or at entrance to the Williamsburg Bridge or 10:00pm at Madison Square Park, 23rd & Broadway, and will end at Time’s Up’s Musical After-Party at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space in the Lower East Side.
The dance party will feature multimedia presentations by East Village activists and artists including Fly, Seth Tobocman and Eric Drooker and live music by Banji and the Rude Mechanical Orchestra. The bike ride is free to join and the dance party will be $5-$25 at the door with free valet bike parking.
