New Years is always a boisterous affair in New York.
It positively brims with energy on Christmas and New Year with festivities.
Being based in NY, let us share with you some of the fun things we do here to celebrate.
And if you’re here right now, come and join us!
- Times Square
The first place that should come to your mind, if you think of new year’s eve in New York, would definitely be Times Square.
Yes, its true that it is already the most popular tourist location in New York, but it becomes even more alive on the last day of the year!
The Times Square Ball Drop is the main attraction every new year’s eve. The ball is dropped to cover a fall of 141 feet in exactly 60 seconds right at 11:59 PM to mark the beginning of a new year. The crowd here is surely one of its kinds and you would not regret celebrating the event here!
- Empire State Building
If there is any place that can remotely match the celebrations at the Times Square, it is the Empire State Building. If you are a fan of fireworks, this is the place to be in. The primary attraction here is the decoration.
The buildings are beautifully decorated and that is quite a spectacle. Being on the observatory will give you a view of the entire city, in a panoramic form! And once the fireworks begin, it will be difficult to take your eyes off.
- Brooklyn Bridge
If you are out with your partner on New Year’s Eve, you can take a romantic walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to celebrate. There are a lot of paid tours available ranging between $30 and $50 as well. However, you can even choose to just stroll across and observe fireworks from across the city. Be it the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building or even the Manhattan Bridge, all the fireworks are visible from the romantic Brooklyn Bridge.
- Statue of Liberty
Could there be a better way to enjoy the New Year with your partner than going on a cruise? Take a cruise and witness the spectacular fireworks at the Statue of Liberty. There are a lot of special packages available during this time of the year.
If you’re with family though, how about these suggestions!
- Central Park
The New Year is one of the most celebrated occasions in the city and thus it is the best time to be with your family and friends. If you are out with your family and looking to have a great time on the last day of December, Central Park would be a great option.
This urban park will give you a great show on this day with its beautiful décor and celebrations. What are the star attractions here? Firstly, the fireworks are amazing to watch. They give you the perfect feel of the last day of the year. Add to that, the costume parade will really get you going into the celebrations.
- Make Holiday Crackers to POP
Add some sparkle to your dinner table and gather the kids for a craft corner. All you need are some toilet paper rolls, treats, wrapping paper and some other supplies that you can find around the house! It’ll give the kids something to do and you’ll have some fancy holiday crackers for the new year!
- Eve on Ice?
Want to be more active on December 31st? Bundle up the kids and head to the local skating rink. Many cities have annual New Year’s Eve skating parties, or see what other NYE events are scheduled that are family-friendly.
- Being at Home Together
If you don’t wish to brave the crowds or participate in the rowdy New Year festivities, spend a cosy one at home instead, with family or friends in a little private party. Watch the countdowns and shows on tv, play games through the night, maybe make resolutions or plans for the new year together.
There’s no wrong way to spending your New Year as long you are where you want to be.
Let us usher into the New Year together, and welcome 2018!
Happy New Years everyone, from us at Evanesce New York!!
