New Years Eve in Times Square
If you’re willing to brave to cold and crowds, stars like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Drake, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Tony Bennett might make it worth your while. This is covered on over 1,000 websites, so I won’t spend much time on it. After all, this is the “non-tourist” tourist guide to NYC – and NO New Yorkers do this on NYE.
It is usually freezing, you’re outside for 7 or more hours, elbow to elbow with over 700,000 people, no bathrooms, backpacks or beverages. Once the ball drops, it will be an hour before you can even leave Times Square.
I did do this when I was 16 years old, and it’s nice to be able to say you did it once. You couldn’t pay me to do it again. Feeling Brave? timessquarenyc.org has the info you need and balldrop.com has tons of parties and tickets listed!
