PHOTOS: 100 Of The Coolest People In NY Tech Party On The Floor Of The New York Stock Exchange

This week, we celebrated our annual
Silicon Alley 100list at the New York Stock Exchange.

Hundreds of people doing cool and interesting things in New York tech came for cocktails, good food, and great company.

The group partied until late, straight through the event and through two after parties that followed.

Guests gathered in the entrance of The New York Stock Exchange before the event began.

The trading floor was packed with interesting people.

New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter talked shop with freelance writer Caroline McCarthy.

About midway through the party, Business Insider's Editor-in-Chief Henry Blodget, President and COO Julie Hansen, and NYSE's Michael D'Agostino spoke.

'Now look serious.'

Kathryn Minshew of The Muse stopped by and posed with a friend.

The BarkBox trio made an appearance.

Can't go wrong with such an interesting group of people.

We handed out Blowfish tablets, a hangover cure, at the end of the night.

Of course, the party wouldn't have been possible without BI's event director, Valerie Reimer (center). She's surrounded by former BIers Laura Aronsson (left), a law school student, and Katherine Churchill, now at BermanBraun.
