IT WAS NEW YEARS EVE/DAY, EITHER 1975/76 OR 1976/77. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACTBECAUSE THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED WHEN I LIVED ON THE 12TH FLOOR IN THE HBUILDING. IN EARLY 1977, I MOVED TO A 2-BEDROOM APARTEMENT AT KG6.I WAS NEWLY MARRIED, WITH NO CHILDREN, AND I DECIDED TO THROW A NEW YEARSEVE PARTY IN MY APARTMENT IN THE H BUILDING. THERE WERE ANYWHERE FROM2O-30 PEOPLE CROWDED INTO MY TINY ONE-BEDROOM. WHICH FACED THE OLDPLAYGROUND BETWEEN THE COURTYARDS.AS ABOUT 11:30, MOST OF US WERE FEELING PRETTY GOOD, AND I CAME UP WITH THISTRULY BRILLIANT IDEA. I WAS A LITTLE CRAZY THEN. I'M MUCH BETTER NOW.TO PULL OFF THIS STUNT I NEEDED THE HELP OF SOMEONE MORE DEMENTED THANME. MY CLOSE FRIEND, WHOM I'LL CALL AA, CERTAINLY FIT THIS DESCRIPTION.THIS WAS THE TIME OF THAT ALARMING CRAZE CALLED “STREAKING.” I'M SURE WEALL REMEMBER A BEMUSED DAVID NIVEN STANDING AT THE PODIUM AT THEACADEMY AWARDS WHILE SOME NUT IN HIS BIRTHDAY SUIT DID THE 40 YARD DASHBEHIND HIM.THE PLAN WAS THIS.FOR $100 AA WOULD STREAK COMPLETELY NAKED, STARTING AT EXACTLY 12MIDNIGHT, INSIDE THE PERIMITER OF THE WEST COURT OF KNICKERBOCKER VILLAGE. AA TRIED TO TALK ME OUT OF MORE CASH, BUT I WAS FIRM. 100 BUCKS. NOT A PENNY MORE. I PASSED THE HAT, AND GETTING 100 BUCKS FROM THE CREWWAS NO PROBLEM.AT EXACTLY 11:50, WE PUT OUR PLAN, SO TO SPEAK, INTO MOTION.AA, ACCOMPANIED BY OUR FRIEND FRANK, WENT DOWN THE ELEVATOR TO THEFIRST FLOOR , WHILE THE REST OF US RAN UP TO THE ROOF, SO WE'D HAVE ABIRDSEYE VIEW OF THE FESTIVITIES.MY THEN-WIFE STOOD IN THE APARTMENT SO SHE COULD GIVE A HAND SIGNALTOWARDS THE ROOF AS TO WHEN THE BALL AT TIMES SQUARE HAD REACHEDBOTTOM, SIGNIFYING THE START OF A NEW YEAR.AA UNDRESSED IN THE GROUND FLOOR STAIRWELL, DOWN TO HIS SKIVVIES AND APAIR OF WHITE SNEAKERS. THEN AS THE TIME GREW NEAR, AA AND FRANK, LEAVINGTHE CLOTHES IN THE STAIRWELL, MOVED TOWARDS THE FRONT DOOR OF THE HBUILDING.AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, AT AROUND MIDNIGHT NEW YEARS EVE THERE WAS NO ONE INSIGHT. THAT IS, OUTSIDE IN THE COURTYARD. EVERYONE WAS HOME CELEBRATING.THAT'S WHY THIS WAS A GENIUS MOVE.FRANK STOOD OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR, AWAITING MY SIGNAL FROM THE ROOF. AT
 
MIDNIGHT, MY THEN- WIFE GAVE THE HAND SIGNAL TO SOMEONE ON THE ROOFFACING THE OLD PLAYGROUND. THEY RELAYED THE MESSAGE TO ME AND I YELLEDDOWN TO FRANK, “GO!!!”AA IMMDIATELY TOOK OFF HIS SKIVVIES, FLUNG THEM TO FRANK, AND WEARING NOTHING BUT HIS SNEAKERS AND A SMILE, DASHED OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR OF THEH BUILDING.AND OFF HE WENT. IN 20 DEGREE WEATHER. WITH HIS BIG BELLY BOUNCING UP ANDDOWN, AA TURNED RIGHT, AND DASHED TOWARDS THE G BUILDING. THEN LEFT, PASTTHE GUARD HOUSE AND LEFT AGAIN AT THE L BUILDING.BY THIS TIME, ABOUT A HUNDRED PEOPLE WERE LOOKING OUT THE KV WINDOWS,THROWING THEIR CUSTOMARY NEW YEARS EVE CONFETTI INTO THE COURTYARD .THEY SPOTTED AA, AND A ROAR WENT UP FROM THE CROWD. THE CHANTINGSTARTED, “RUN! RUN! RUN!”AS AA PASSED THE K BUILDING, THE GUARD EMERGED FROM THE GUARD HOUSE. HESCRATCHED HIS HEAD, SAW AA STREAKING ALONG, AND RAN FRANTICALLY BACK INTO THE GUARD HOUSE.I SAW THIS FROM THE ROOF AND YELLED TO AA, “FASTER! FASTER! FASTER!AA PICKED UP SPEED, DOING A WHEELIE AS HE TURNED LEFT AT THE J BUILDING. ICOULD SEE MY FATHER AT THE WINDOW OF JF12 LOOKING DOWN WITH HIS WIFE FATJULIE. THEY WERE BOTH LAUGHING THEIR HEADS OFF, AS WERE ABOUT ANESTIMATED 200-300 PEOPLE WHO WERE NOW WATCHING FROM ALMOST EVERYWINDOW.YOU COULD ALMOST SEE THE STEAM SHOOTING FROM AA'S EXHAUST, AS HE MADETHE FINAL LEFT TURN AT THE I BUILDING AND DASHED TOWARDS HOME. JUST AS HEMADE A RUNNING RIGHT TURN INTO THE H BUILDING, ANOTHER GUARD CAMESPRINTING DOWN THE STEPS TO THE GUARD HOUSE.FOLLOWING THE PLAN TO PERFECTION, FRANKIE HANDED AA HIS SKIVVIES ANDTHEY BOTH RAN TO THE STAIRWELL TO THE LEFT OF THE ELEVATORS. AA QUICKLYDRESSED AS HE AND FRANKIE RAN UP THE STAIRS. ONCE THEY REACHED THE 12THFLOOR, IT WAS LESS THAN FIVE FEET TO MY APARTMENT DOOR.SAFE AT HOME.BY THIS TIME, MOST OF OUR COWD HAD RUN BACK DOWN TO MY APARTMENT, BUT ISTAYED ON THE ROOF TO WATCH THE 2 GUARDS RUN INTO THE H BUILDING, AS AAWAS SAFELY CHUGGING UP THE STAIRS.THE GUARDS FOUND NOBODY. AND NOTHING EVER CAME FROM THE INCIDENT.KV PEOPLE, STAYING TRUE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD CODE, NEVER REVEALED THEIDENTIFTY OF OUR NEW YEARS EVE STREAKER. IN FACT, I DON'T THINK ANYONE WAS
