Reader Eric McGregor let Gothamist know that he checked out the Only in New York events we'd written about earlier this week: 1 More Time for the 9 party - which is exactly what it sounds like - and Manhunt! Dumbo (hide and seek in the shadows of the Manhattan Bridge). Eric has photographs and video from both events at his site, and notes that DUMBO is perfect for hide and seek because "there's almost no traffic" and "there aren't that many pedestrians."

Did you go to either event? And more 9 party photographs from Brian Van's Flickr set, who says, "The AC on the train was almost immediately ineffective. It was sweaty, smelly, and ugly; however, most people were drunk (or of the "high on life" variety) so everyone seemed to have fun."
