In this video we start in Nelson Sullivan‘s home at Five Ninth Avenue near Gansevoort street in the (MPD) Meat Packing District, preparing to go to the grand opening of Mars nightclub at tenth avenue and thirteenth street in New York City on December 31, 1988. As the video opens we find Michael Alig, Rudolf, Lohoma, Larry Tee, Harlequin and Superstar Christina (who was Nelson’s date for the evening) all rampetly getting ready to Ring in the new year at Mars.
Someone is knocking at the door it can’t be Michael Alig he’s already there who could it be? It’s Superstar DJ Keoki, arriving just in time to leave for the party, but before Nelson leaves with his gaggle of friends he must wish Blackout his dog a Happy New Year.
Off they go over to the club, is it Halloween? no it’s just the New York City Club Kids. The group gets to and enter Mars which is packed to the gills with people trying to get into the club, they enter looking for Stars such as Sting and Melanie Griffith whom have yet to arrive. Once inside Nelson makes his way through the crowd while filming all the beautiful people. While on his way to the VIP room on the roof Nelson encounters Kenny Kenny another fabulous club kid.
Finally at the top of the club in the VIP area Nelson mingles with the exclusive guests wishing all a Happy New Year 1989! Courtesy of 5ninthavenueproject, Thank you.
