New Year's Eve 2014

December 26th, 2014

If you are coming to New York for New Year’s Eve 2014, this list covers all the bases of fun activities, parties, fireworks-the whole 9:


Arrive by 3pm to stake out a spot in the Broadway/7th Ave cross. Be prepared to stay put and pack all of the snacks and beverages you will need for the night. There are no public restrooms or food vendors so leaving means giving up your spot.

Grassroots environmental organization Time’s Up hosts this under-the-stars bike ride, which begins in Washington Square Park and ends at Central Park’s Belvedere Castle at 11:45pm. Wear festive outfits and bring treats for the outdoor after-party.

Countdown to 2015 with 8,000 LEDs on the Parachute Jump. Once it’s midnight, the fireworks spectacular begins.

Kick off the New Year’s with this beloved Brooklyn fireworks tradition.

Join the fun and celebrate with dancing (starting at 10:00 p.m.), live performances, and a 15-minute fireworks show.

Relive the glory that is Prince’s Purple Rain with a FREE screening of the film at 9:30pm, followed by a dance party all night with your favorite hits from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.

Tis the poor man’s cruise. Board this ferry late on Dec 31 for a magnificent view of lower Manhattan to ring in the New Year.

Not To Miss This December in NYC

December 8th, 2014
Looking for things to do in NYC this December? Check out our insider “NYC Musts” from your local New Yorkers:
  • Knock out your Christmas and Holiday shopping in one day on a Garment Center Tour. Purchase chic accessories, handbags, jewelry, dresses, coats, scarves, fur-gifts for the whole family at wholesale-only prices! And of course, a little self-gifting is okay too!
  • Stop by Bryant Park to check out the outdoor Holiday Vendors that surround the BP Ice Skating Rink. Burn some calories, take a spin on the ice, check out the fabulous BP Christmas tree and then grab a cappuccino and people watch.
  • The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, as always, is a must do if you’ve never seen it! Each year the music, costumes and talented Rockettes & performers grow more exquisite!
  • Take a shopping break and stroll Holiday Under the Stars, an state-of-the-art holiday light display at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. The spectacle features a dozen 14-foot LED stars that do a colorful “dance,” flashing more than 16.7 million color mixes in time to classic yuletide tunes.

  • Museum at FIT opens a new exhibit exploring the Counterfeit Industry and how it affects the fashion world, Faking It. “Fashion should slip out of your hands. The very idea of protecting the seasonal arts is childish. One should not bother to protect that which dies the minute it is born.” Coco Chanel
  • See New Year’s Times Square Ball Drop on December 31st. Ring in the New Year of 2016 in the heart of New York City, Times Square! Or stream it live here.
