New Year’s Eve 2012- Times Square


It’s 2012 that’s ending- not the world

New Year’s Eve is a bigger holiday than New Year’s day because it is such an amazing thing to know that we lived through one year an dare about to witness the new.  So many people started 2012 and many are no longer here, they have passed on. We are still here and while that is cause for celebration, let’s pause for a minute and be thankful we are still here.

Times Square- New York

Times Square in New York City is the place to be for every New Year’s Eve celebration.  There is just no place like it.  I am usually in church when the ball drops, but, you can still go to Times Square in the day and capture the feeling.  People line up in Times Square from early in the morning, as a matter of fact, if you want a good spot to see the ball drop, you need to be there around noon.  Follow me on Twitter and you will see the crowds lining up from early on Monday, December 31, 2012.

Times Square Museum and Visitor Center

In Times Square itself you are at the center of the world.  Everything is within a stone’s throw from Times Square.  So, how do you get there?  The best way to get there is by subway (A C E N Q R S 1 2 3 7).   If you are a visitor, go straight to the Times Square Museum and Visitors Center at 1560 Broadway, New York, NY 10036.  The entrance is located at 7th Ave between 46th & 47th Streets, and you can call (212) 452-5283) if you have questions.  Another cool thing to note about Times Square is that there is free Wi-fi so just look for “Visitor Center free Wi-fi” and then connect your tablet or phone.  Times Square is just the happiest, busiest place on earth.

If you want to take in a Broadway show while in Times Square for New Year’s Eve 2012 celebration, look for the TKS Booth and get your tickets to Broadway shows.  In many instances you can get deeply discounted tickets for some of the most popular shows.  In addition, you can do shopping, go to nice restaurants, or just sit in Times square and enjoy all the excitement.  Make sure you have a camera, fresh batteries, and a bottle of water.  Enjoy Times Square.  If you found this helpful, spread the word through Facebook, Twitter and other similar sites, even My Space.
