Best New Year’s Eve Events

The City’s most popular New Year’s Eve celebration is a modest 6-ton ball drop in Times Square. But it’s not the only way to ring in 2018; beyond that confetti-laden display, there are parties, concerts, fireworks displays and even a brisk 4-mile jog through Central Park. We’ve listed some of our favorite options below; check our guide to NYC’s best New Year’s Day events for ways to follow up the big night.
