As a die hard Californian, I’ve always been fascinated with New York City, especially during New Years Eve New York. Sky rises, bright lights, fast paced, overly eager and yet still abundantly soothing. There are many splendors that the Big Apple has to offer but sometimes, we just can’t keep up with all the things that are going on. Especially with someone like me; a newly joined resident of Manhattan from the opposite side of the country, has a difficult time to know where to go, what to see, why to go see it, etc. An outside perspective can always offer new insights, especially one that has much more experience and it’s never a bad thing to have too much information. What better way to make an educated decision based on the knowledge that you have? Blog’s are quickly becoming the forefront of educating an end-user about a product, service or experience – sometimes a critic’s opinion is just not enough. Being in the middle of Time Square when the ball drops at midnight in on NYC New Years has always been something that I have wanted to do but from reading the savvy blogs below, it might sway me to try something that isn’t so cliche.

Pack a picnic brunch – make sure to include mimosas – and head off to Central Park to the perfect spot for your romantic picnic. Scope the park out ahead of time so you know where you’re headed.

If it’s your first trip to the city that never sleeps, cozy up to your lover in a carriage ride or stroll through the park on foot and check out the fountain and the imagine mosaic.
In New York City, masses of tourists and a few brave locals cram together in Times Square to watch the dropping ball and celebrate the New Year. While champagne and noise-makers now characterize New York New Years Eve, there are long traditions of celebrating the New Year in other cultures around the world.
The New Year's Eve has been celebrated for thousands of years, but the exact date that we celebrate today was originally established by Roman Emperor Julius Caesar in 46 B.C.E. Other cultures celebrate the New Year at different times of the year and with different traditions. Chinese New Year celebrations include wearing new clothes, often red, and New Year gatherings with family and friends. The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, has traditions of going to services and the blowing of the shofar, a ram’s horn.
