"Good morning 2012!" was the rallying cry hollered by a young lass in full-on party mode just before dawn broke on New Year's Day at hip hotel the Lexington. The sky was drenched in imperial violet as the sun readied its leap over the horizon, which usually is the indicator that whatever all-night rager you're attending is about to wind down.

That certainly wasn't the case during the NYE Takeover, however, as dawn came and party kept going. And going, and going, and going. DJs like Deepfreq and Pablo Gomez kept spinning, those in attendance kept drinking, and the dance floor stayed hopping well until the afternoon.

After-hours instigator Quincy Ross rented out the entire top floor of the Lexington, arranging DJs and dance floors in many of the numerous suites. Each was like a club unto itself, offering house music in one room while choice old school hip-hop was being laid down in another.

Meanwhile, both music and people spilled out into the hallway, either to lean against the wall and catch a breather, or socialize with the rogue's gallery of scenesters, artists, gadabouts, or anyone else willing to incur a serious sleep debt in exchange for potent partying memories.

Needless to say, it was quite the epic affair. The Club Candids cameras were fortunate enough to witness the takeover firsthand, which we documented in this week's slideshow.

There are some types of equipment that do not fall into any of the categories like agricultural equipment, automobile equipment and so on. Such equipments are categorized in the common heading General. General equipments help you improve your business or expand your business. However some of them may be expensive and so you need to go for general equipment financing to fulfill your needs.

I had been to Brooklyn once before when my husband took me there to visit his childhood home. But it wasn't the Brooklyn that I visited this week or had heard about for years before. He showed me parks and beautiful row homes and his elementary school. No, this Brooklyn was a whole new experience from the second I arrived!


That was wicked fun!...from what I recall...
