It's never too early to start planning - discover the many places you can belt out your best rendition of Auld Lang Syne when celebrating New Year’s Eve in NYC!
Celebrating New Year’s Eve in NYC should be on everyone’s dream destination experiences! Watching the magnificent crystal ball drop is exhilarating from behind the television screen but imagine if you were experiencing it in person?! As we've discovered, this time honored tradition isn’t the only place to bust out the “Auld Lang Syne” in NYC...
Watch “The Ball” Drop!
The quintessential event: join a few million other revelers and watch the ball drop from Times Square on New Year’s Eve! Even though the descent is only mere seconds, to get the best view, be prepared to spend all day gathered together in the “Crossroads of the World”.
Party at the New York Road Runner's Midnight Run
For a unique look at the city in winter (and for those looking to shed some extra holiday pounds) know that there’s an entrant’s fee to participate in this annual four-mile run through Central Park, but at 10:00pm it opens up to a free party and costume contest to get everyone in a festive mood.
Listen to the Concert for Peace
There are always a bevy of concerts taking place in NYC on December 31st. One of the most celebrated is the New Year's Eve Concert for Peace at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.
Watch the Fireworks in Prospect Park
The perfect place to catch the festive firework “bombs blasting in air” is at Grand Army Plaza off Prospect Park. Starting at 11:00pm, this loudly spectacular light-show comes complete with some complimentary hot cocoa and live music!
* No matter how you choose to ring in the New Year, remember to arrive at your choice of festive event early.
