There is nothing quite like New York City on New Year’s Eve. What better place to ring in 2019 than on the streets of Manhattan? With an abundance of parties and activities to choose from, New York City is sure to offer something for every taste and preference. Although it can be challenging to narrow down your choices, here are five of the best ideas to help you get started on your planning:
TIME’S SQUARE: The granddaddy of them all, this iconic celebration is truly a bucket list party. If you haven’t done this at least once in your life, you don’t know what you are missing. Yes, you will have to fight massive crowds and endure cold temperatures. But the reward is well worth it once the ball finally drops and you are placed in front of the eyes of the whole world.
BANGON! NYC PRESENTS TIME + SPACE: This eight-hour show combines an eclectic mix of aerial performers, fire-breathers, zip-line performances, and a silent disco. The well-loved crew performs its show under a solar system installation, allowing revelers to feel as if they are outside under the stars. This performance is sure to bring a smile to your face and end your year with a bang.
NEW YORK ROAD RUNNERS MIDNIGHT RUN: Why wait to get a start on your New Year’s resolution to get in shape? The New York Road Runners (NYRR) club is sponsoring a four-mile Midnight Run beginning in Central Park. The run ends with an after-party for the participants, making this the perfect way to combine work with pleasure.
NEW YEAR’S EVE RIDE: If running is not your jam, you can choose to ring in the new year with a bike ride instead. Starting at 9:30 pm, this free night-ride event begins in midtown and ends in the Lower East Side. After completing the ride, you can celebrate with other cyclists at the TIME’S UP’s Musical After-Party at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space. Celebrate the night guilt-free by working up a sweat before hitting the party circuit.
NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS IN PROSPECT PARK: End 2018 with a bang at this free firework show lighting up the skies over Park Slope. Plan on arriving by 10:30 pm for the live music at Grand Army Plaza. The fireworks will begin promptly at midnight with the best viewing locations on West Drive and along Prospect Park West and in Grand Army Plaza.
