Voor Het Nieuwe Jaar from Barclays

Voor Het Nieuwe Jaar from Barclays
The Capitalism Casino & Entertainment would like to wish everyone, in Nederlands/ Dutch, a Happy New Year! (Quite funny that I should catch the well wishes in Dutch, since New York was founded by the Dutch and used to be called Nieuw Amsterdam!)

I know enough to recognize "...voor het nieuwe jaar" as "... for the New Year" in Dutch / Nederlands, but I can't tell the words before that. I'm sure my many Dutch friends can help me out here! Dank u!

This is 745 7th Avenue in New York City. Before 2008 this was the head office of the infamous Lehman Brothers investment bank. Following its sudden bankruptcy, the U.S. operations were acquired by Barclays plc in a fire sale. And now Barclays Capital is the new occupant of the building.

We should have foreseen something was horribly wrong when a bank began to look like a flashy casino.

(My hands were surprisingly steady that night to be able to take this photo hand-held!)
