They don't call it a "New Year's Rocking Eve" just because it sounds cool. New Year's Eve in New York is cool, whether you choose one of the famous celebrations or one of the more low-key, lesser-known, but still fun events. You can choose from crowded, noisy events watched by millions on TV or smaller more family-friendly affairs that still provide plenty of music and celebration. Whichever one you choose, it'll still be fun.
Perhaps the most famous celebration is the one held in Times Square every year. This event, with its celebrated ball drop is watched by millions on TV, but there's nothing like being there.
You can choose from travel packages that help you with hotel and flight reservations. This way all you have to worry about is how soon to get to Times Square to get the best glimpse of the ball as it soars down to the ground, marking another New Year.
Dinner cruises are a very unique way of celebrating New Year's Eve. Paddlewheel boats, yachts, and other sailing vessels let you enjoy the sights and sounds of New York City on New Year's Eve from on the waters in and around New York Harbor.
Some dinner cruises offer live entertainment, including comedians and live music, hosted by a DJ, while others offer five-course dinners and other amenities. Don't worry about getting chilled; there are warm indoor places to enjoy the party and excitement.
49 Grove is also known for its New Year's Eve celebration. In fact, it already has New Year's Eve party and ticket information posted on its website. The lounge is located in West Village between Christopher Street and 7th Avenue. It's a very elegant, stylish venue, which adds even more flair to your New Year's Eve celebration.
