Celebrate the New Year in style with a trip to New York AKA the Big Apple! Countdown to 2019 in style with Pillinger World Travel, staying at the 4 star Roosevelt Hotel.
Whether you are looking for a big party or looking for an intimate dinner for two, New York has everything to offer on New Year’s Eve. So you have seen the ball drop on TV and want to go? We don’t blame you, it’s New Yorks’ most iconic celebration. The ball drops from the top of One Times Square and it’s best seen from the north, between 43rd and 50th and on 7th Avenue between 43rd and 59th. Just make sure when you decide to go you dress warmly, get there early (like really early), and take plenty of snacks and water.
The firework display from the New York Harbour lights up the sky when the clock strikes midnight. You can view the firework display from Manhattan’s Battery Park, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade or via a boat by the harbour. You can also take a cruise down the Manhattan River to view the fireworks, though they can be pricey! However, cheaper cruises are available.
If you don’t fancy standing outside in Times Square or catching a cruise in Winter, then you can also head to a rooftop bar overlooking the celebrations. Venues such as Attic Rooftop & Lounge or the Monarch Lounge are ideal Spend the night drinking cocktails, quaffing champagne, and dining on great food, all whilst watching the fireworks. Just make sure you buy tickets!
Fitness enthusiasts can join in on the New York Road Runner’s midnight run! Run through Central Park on New Year’s Eve and catch an incredible view of the fireworks. If you are up for dressing up you can also participate in the costume competition, with prizes going to the most interesting and craziest costumes.
