Where to Watch New Year’s Eve Fireworks in New York for 2016/2017

One of the best ways to celebrate New Year's Eve when it's time to ring in the new year is to watch fireworks that explode in the night's sky. For those who plan to spend time in New York, there are a few places to visit to enjoy a beautiful light display after the countdown begins to midnight. To ensure that you get a great view, there are a few places to visit where you can see the fireworks while rubbing shoulders with other people in the city.


Brooklyn Bridge

Multiple groups will attend a guided tour while walking on the Brooklyn Bridge with information provided about the history of the famous bridge. The tour will pause to ensure that everyone can get a glimpse of the fireworks over the skyline, which will reflect off of the water and will create a stunning display that makes it a memorable holiday.


Times Square

Known as the most popular place in the Big Apple, Times Square is a hot spot for thousands of visitors and tourists who want to countdown to midnight and get a glimpse of the ball dropping on New Year's Eve. Pyrotechnics will be set off at One Times Square every hour, which will light up the sky and is one of the highlights of the holiday. You'll need to find a spot to reserve in the afternoon and stay put to ensure that you can enjoy celebrating the start of a new year in an incredible location.


Prospect Park

Prospect Park is an ideal place to relax for those who want to avoid running into crowds in New York City. You can pack a blanket and snacks before seeing the fireworks sparkle above Park Slope. The park will also feature live music and entertainment at Grand Army Plaza an hour before midnight.


Rooftop Bars

Those who want to stay warm inside or breathe in fresh air can visit a rooftop bar, which offers sweeping views of the city and will allow you to get a glimpse of fireworks that are set off in every direction. Empire Hotel Rooftop features three separate terraces that are available where you can view Central Park and Lincoln Center while indulging in specialty cocktails. Hotel Chantelle is another popular bar that serves French-Mediterranean fare at a tri-level bar and restaurant. You can order a winter cocktail as you view the city skyline and take in the beautiful views of the water. Le Bain at the Standard Hotel is another hot spot where patrons come to take a dip in a jacuzzi and view the surrounding city with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that are available at one of the most popular bars in the city.
