Who would have guessed our quote-providing hero would be at Times Square on New Year’s Eve? Here are three people who were surprised and bowled over: New York Daily News reporters Shane Dixon Kavanaugh, James Panelli, and Tina Moore:
Greg Packer, 47, a retired maintenance worker from Huntington, N.Y., ate an entire pizza. It was his eighth New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
“I love it,” he said. “I mean, everybody from all over the world comes just to watch a Waterford crystal ball. It’s great.”
Happy New Year, Greg!
