One of the most famous New Year’s Eve destinations is without a doubt New York City. Experiencing New Years in New York is an item that is on many people’s bucket list. There are so many ways you can ring in the New Year while in New York.
We have all watched the ball drop in Times Square from our very own TV, as it officially marks the New Year. Experiencing this global event in person is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You definitely have to know what you are getting yourself into before you decide to go to this crazy event. To get a prime viewing spot it is recommended to be there around noon. The party starts at 6pm, so go prepared for hours on end standing in a crowded area. There are no public bathrooms or food provided so you must come prepared. For food, most people eat a big meal before they arrive, so they can start off full. They then bring snacks and water to help keep them going and hydrated. As far as the bathrooms most people will wear an adult diaper. This may seem insane but leaving your spot means losing your position, so people will do anything to keep their spot. Once it starts there are live performances, a chance to be on live television, and of course the famous ball drop. If you can handle all the insanity of the crowd then it is an amazing experience you are guaranteed to never forget.
