    New Year’s Eve is around the corner and it’s time to make some plans. Wondering where to get the best views of the New Year’s Eve fireworks? Here are the best places in NYC to take in the fireworks spectacular.

    Prospect Park at Grand Army Plaza and Ninth Street is the perfect cozy spot to huddle up with a cup of hot cocoa and watch the fireworks burst over Long Meadow.

    Central Park at South 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue is the spot where runners participating the Midnight Run will meet after the run but all are welcome to join the party. Bring your dancing shoes because there will be music and other New Year's celebration activities.

    Luna Park at Steeplechase Plaza makes for a magical evening of fireworks by the water. Do something different this year and revel in the excitement from Brooklyn’s own Coney Island. New Year’s Eve at Luna Park is sure to be a packed night of entertainment, food and fun. 

    Times Square at Broadway and Seventh Avenue never fails to put on the ultimate New Year's Eve experience for tourists and New Yorkers alike. Claim your spot around the grand ball by 3 p.m. and rock out to show-stopping performances from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Grab a snack and plenty of water to avoid losing your spot in the crowd.
