New Year’s Eve is only a week away, you’ve got to go out with a bang! No one knows how to throw a party like New York City.
If you want a typical New York New Year’s Eve then you have to stop by Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in Times Square. Is it going to be crowded? Absolutely. You should get to Times Square by 3pm on December 31st if you want a good spot, they’ll fill up quickly.
But it will be worth it to watch the legendary ball drop in person! And you can’t forget about the performances! Stars like Hailee Steinfeld, Alessia Cara, and Mike Posner will be there to help ring in 2017! It will be the celebration of a life.
But if you don’t want to stand in the cold on New Year’s Eve in Times Square that’s okay, it’s not for everyone. But that doesn’t mean that NYC doesn’t have something amazing for you and your loved ones to do! There are plenty of alternative options!
Do you want a lowkey night full of free fireworks? Head over to Prospect Park! Live music starts at 11pm and fireworks begin at midnight It’s the most fun cost efficient way to leap into 2017!
If you want to jazz things up, try an NYE Cruise! Imagine ringing in the New Year while passing iconic sights like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State building! As if it already doesn’t sound like a magical evening, there will be live DJ entertainment and an open bar. At midnight you’ll get to see fireworks in the New York Harbor and you’ll get a class of champagne to toast to 2017!
For the party animal, there’s lots of events going on all over the city! From the Black & White Masquerade Ball at Soho Grand Hotel to Annaleigh Ashford: New Year’s magic at 54 Below, you’ll have an amazing time on New Year’s Eve, as long as you spend it in NYC!
