Like Bono once said, it’s always quiet on New Year’s Day — until the first baby of the year comes screaming into the world.

Brownstone Brooklyn’s silence was officially broken at 5:38 am at New York Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, as Taras and Mariya Tsyapa celebrated the birth of their first child, Anneliese Emily Tsyapa. The tot weighed in at 7 pounds.

Just 20 minutes later — at 6:08 am to be precise — Woodhull Hospital in Williamsburg welcomed Justin St. Juste, the son of Marie and Milorono Toussaint-St. Juste. Justin tipped the scales at a whopping nine pounds and two ounces.

Almost two hours later, at 7:57 am, Lutheran Medical Center in Sunset Park got into the act, birthing Elaine You, who weighed 5-pounds-13. Mother Qiao Feng Chen and daughter came through it in fine form, hospital officials said.

Finally, at 3 pm, Long Island College Hospital got into the action, delivering Dominique Knight of her 7-pounds-11 bundle of joy, a boy whom she named Davonte. Knight said she was pleased to give her 18-month-old daughter Madison that ultimate holiday gift: a baby brother.

The Brooklyn Paper wishes all our readers — and especially these four new Brooklynites — a healthy and prosperous New Year.
