When you were a young kid, did you ever think you’d be living on 42nd Street, just a few avenues away from the the world’s most famous New Year’s Eve celebration? Probably not, but you also probably didn’t realize how not unappealing the crowds and cold can be in Times Square on December 31st. If you’ll be navigating the arctic air and confetti this NYE, try one of these not as high profile NYE celebrations for a fun time not that far from your Riverbank apartment.
