NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – As much as the true believes think today is the end-of-days, many New Yorkers are convinced the apocalypse isn’t coming.

According to doomsayers, the rapture is scheduled to happen tonight around 6pm. 

So what do New Yorkers think?

“It’s just another day,” one man told 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg.

Others like Hector are taking advantage of the rapture with a wild night of partying.

“I had my pre-rapture party. I’m just enjoying life right now in Times Square. I’ll wait for it here in Times Square, just like every new year,” he said.  “I’ll wait for the rapture to happen here.”

Another man named Mario envisioned he’d go out in style.

“Something very debaucherous because after that, I’m going to pray to get into wherever I need to get to,” he said.

But his pal Vincent is annoyed with all the ads calling today Judgement Day.

“It’s going to put everybody in a hysteria. And people are going to be running around acting like the world is going to end and if we’re here past 6 o’clock, people are going to be pissed,” he said. 

But Hector’s not worried.

“It could happen at any time. Someone could die in the street and that would be the end of the world for them. It’s just this kind of perspective thing and I’m not going to hang under a cloud like that.”

The true believers may be certain, but it’s never crossed one woman’s mind. “I think it’s probably going to be a nice day. I’m pretty sure I’ll be around Sunday.”
