In this cold weather, it takes the pressure of a group to get lots of these brave souls in the cold water.

Santacon 2014 nyc

Santacon NYC 2014 is over. The Santas have returned the city to the New Yorkers. Life in NYC can go back to normal, and the city had its Million March the same day. We can’t wait till Santacon 2015 NYC is here…

The organizers of Santacon hoped to make the NYC 2014 edition a bit less controversial. For two reasons: they had lost a lot of credit and goodwill after a movie of fighting santas went viral and global, and since New York organized on the same day the Million March.

Reports are that they managed to keep the santas mainly indoors in bar that accepted them. Runors are that the organizers would like to make this a family event with a parade, but that seems like a far stretch for a alcohol induced event. Future will tell.

Some Santas are welcomed easier by the New Yorkers than others

Millions March, NYC

Over 25000 protesters marching in the streets of Manhattan on Saturday December 16, 2014, asking that policemen involved in lethal shootings will not go free. The protests is the most recent in a series that started in New York after the Ferguson verdict, and was fueled by the decision of the grand jury on Staten Island not to indict the officer who strangled Eric Garner.

The protest was over a mile long, and ended around 6pm near City Hall. Later, a group of protesters would block Brooklyn Bridge and the NYPD reported some suspicious tools had been discovered amongst the people blocking the bridge, and an arrest had been made after a person “attacked officers”.
