"New Year's Eve!!!" Holidays & Parades Tip by Jenniflower

Holidays & Parades, New York City: 4 reviews and 7 photos

Do NOT arrive in New York on New Year?s Eve, especially if you are staying anywhere near (within a ten block radius) of the New Year?s celebrations.

We arrived in New York on New Year?s Eve. It was madness! Especially as we had just arrived from quiet Hickory in North Carolina ? talk about culture shock!

Trains are overcrowded, subway was stopped, huge road blocks are in force so you cannot get around certain areas except on foot.

Police were everywhere, blockades help control the crowds swarming toward Times Square.

We would like to visit New York again in the future, but will go at a quieter and warmer time?
