New Year’s Eve is the time to bid farewell to all the concerns and problems of the past year and prepare for a new start. Celebrating New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting and oldest customs. From uninhabited laughter, fireworks and shouts of joy with everyone trying to make as much noise as possible! New Year’s Eve always has plenty of toasts for luck, good health, prosperity and love.
In New York on New Year’s Eve it is quite common for families or a bunch of friends to gather for house parties, to ring in the New Year in their own style. Everyone parties all night and then around midnight they count down the last few seconds together. I have a few buddies that live in New York and they have had some massive New Year’s Eve house parties that I have been to.
Spending New Year’s Eve in New York City is one of the most fascinating experiences any person can ever have. On New Year’s Eve the city becomes the world’s capital of diverse entertainment, adventure and endless fun. Every year, Times Square hosts a spectacular event that is attended by hundreds of thousands of visitors and locals. This is one of the largest New Year’s Eve street parties throughout the world, where a “ball” drops from a flagpole at the stroke of midnight.
This is not an ordinary ball, it actually measures 6 feet and the surface is covered with over 2500 Waterford Crystal triangles and weighs almost 12000 pounds. If you are in New York during this time of the year then you should not miss the golden opportunity to experience this unique event.
Most people love partying during New Year’s Eve and there is plenty of celebrating. Drinking, music and dancing take place at the pubs and nightclubs all over New York City on New Year’s Eve. This is the perfect time to party, celebrate and get drunk with your relatives, close friends and families. Several people will sit back and enjoy a jug of cold beer while watching the New Year’s Eve countdown. I love going to a bar called the Highland Park, which is a stylish yet casual bar, located on East 34 Street. The bar is surrounded by several iconic landmarks like Grand Central Station and the Empire State Building. If you are looking for another popular spot then you might consider the hot and happening Santos Party House. This place has received awards for the best DJ, best nightclub and best dance floor in New York City. These are ideal places to spend time with friends and enjoy something out of the ordinary on New Year’s Eve.
One thing you should consider whilst in New York City for New Year’s Eve is the stunning view from the top of the Empire State Building. The view up there is amazing and as its winter there is no need to worry because one of the viewing decks is enclosed in glass.
