Goodbye, 2011—it was fun while it lasted. New York City celebrates the changing of the calendar in extravagant fashion, with a full slate of art exhibits, holiday events and, naturally, seasonal cheer. Animal lovers will thrill to Winterfest at the Central Park Zoo; sports fans will love the hometown rivalries on display, whether it’s Jets vs. Giants or Rangers vs. Islanders; comic-book aficionados can enjoy Hero, Villain, Yeti on display at the Rubin Museum of Art; and everyone will love the annual New Year’s Eve Times Square ball drop, this year featuring the talents of skinny-tie maven Ryan Seacrest, Canadian sneaker model Justin Bieber (just kidding! stop Tweeting at us!) and hometown girl Lady Gaga.
