This Is How New Yorkers Will Remember a Year They Can’t Wait to Forget


#Several #New #Yorkers, asked about #New #Year’s #Eve plans, expressed shock it was almost here. #In the year that seemed to alter the passage of time, when an afternoon or a month could go by practically unnoticed, and with all the familiar forms of celebration off limits, some said they have no plans at all.

#Others had concrete aspirations and the tools to make them happen: A new down jacket, bought especially for dinner outside. A spot on the sofa and snacks for movie night. A glowing screen for those home alone, but among friends.

#In #Long #Island #City, #Queens, the #Hasman family — mother, father and daughter #Sofie, 11, one another’s constant company since #March — will each select two songs that everyone has to dance to.

“We’ll all dance together as a family,” said Theresa #Hasman, 46, “and just have to go with the flow.”

The dancing will cap a long evening: #At noon, they will gather online with #Ms. #Hasman’s parents in her native #Denmark — where it will be 6 p.m. — and have a glass of #Champagne and watch the queen’s annual speech. #Ms. #Hasman spent 2020 making homemade masks for health care workers and patients when supplies were low. #One mother who received a mask sent a message saying she endured labor and childbirth while wearing one.

“People wrote the nicest notes,” she said. “I will always keep them.”

#Some are keeping it simple. #Vallnez #Mozell, 44, from #Mill #Basin in #Brooklyn, will end the year on her sofa with her husband, #William, and their 6-year-old son, #Rhys, watching some movie from the 1980s — “The #Goonies” was a recent crowd-pleaser. #Mr. #Schwartz and #Ms. #Jablin, the newlyweds, will meet friends at a restaurant. #Mr. #Schwartz bought a new coat for the occasion.
