The biggest event of the year in New York City starts at 11:59pm on December 31st. That’s when the giant ball raised on top of One Times Square starts its world-renowned descent, counting down the final minute of the year and New York City Vacation Packages (NYCVP) is holding an exclusive indoor party in the heart of it all to celebrate the event.

New Year’s Eve is the most memorable night of the year, and NYCVP is a providing an exclusive New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala Party as a way to be in the middle of the action without having to spend all day and night standing out in the cold, cluttered streets of NYC.

The party is being held at Convene (810 7th Avenue), towering 23 stories above the crowds below. This Ball Drop Gala showcases everything New Year’s Eve in Times Square has to offer with the added bonuses of food, drink, music and warmth.

New Year’s Eve has been a highly celebrated tradition in Times Square since 1904, with every New Year outdoing the last. One thing that never changes, however, are the rules, which state that revelers can’t even enjoy a traditional New Year’s Eve champagne toast because public drinking is illegal in the streets.

“All those people on the street stand shivering in the cold with no access to food, beverages, or restrooms for hours just for that 10-second glimpse of the ball drop. Instead, you could enjoy yourself at an exclusive party overlooking Times Square—complete with an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, a buffet dinner and desserts, music and dancing, and of course that gorgeous view of the ball drop and the fireworks,” explains Joel Cohen, one of NYCVP’s team of NYC vacation planning specialists.

NYCVP matches the spectacle of being in Times Square for New Year’s by adding luxury and comfort to the experience. Convene’s large windows wrap around all four walls, so guests will have a full view of all the festivities below and a grand view of the Ball Drop and even the Central Park fireworks. Large flat screen TVs will be in place broadcasting all the network New Year’s Eve specials, with the added entertainment of DJ dance music and a souvenir photo booth to ensure these memories will never be forgotten. There will even be a roving magician for the kids (or for the kids at heart).

NYCVP has accommodations for the event at special rates. The host hotel is the Sheraton New York Times Square, with several other hotels available. Rates start at $1,227.00 per person including 2 nights accommodations at a 3-star hotel, the New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Party Gala, all taxes and bonus admissions to popular New York City attractions. All rates are fully commissionable to travel agents. For more information visit http://www.NYCTrip.com or call NYCVP at 877 NYC-Trip (877 692-8747).
