New York City tour company announces a New Year’s Eve event in Times Square high above the crowds.

NYCVP's New Year's Eve Party

it was an amazing night, all of the staff were fantastic, the music and the atmosphere was incredible. Overall had the best night ever!!!

New York City Vacation Packages (NYCVP) announced today that they will once again be hosting their annual New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala on December 31, 2015. Revelers can ring in the New Year starting at 8pm and celebrate until 12:30am, on the 23rd floor of the Convene Center in the heart of Times Square.

Avoiding the crowds is the whole reason New York City Vacation Packages created this annual event on the night of the ball guests could watch the famous Times Square ball drop on New Year’s Eve, in person, from an exclusive Manhattan party suite – high above the crowds.

One past reveler boasted that they “had the night of our lives. Venue superb, drinks fantastic and food delicious…would highly recommend”. Another gushed at the “incredible location with a DIRECT view of the ball drop and the fireworks in Central Park…the size of the event was perfect, not crowded at all”.

Most travelers who come to NYC on New Year’s Eve do not realize they get stuffed into small pens in Times Square which are monitored by the NYPD. The NYPD start piling them in at 42nd street and once the pen is filled up, they then move back a street to the next open pen, and so on until they are filling up pens close to Central Park. There is no food or drinks allowed in the pens and no easily accessible restrooms nearby. In fact, if someone is traveling with a group and they leave the pen to get some refreshments or to use facilities, they will get put into the next open pen and will not be able to get back with their group until after the streets start to clear around 12:30am. So you can start off right in front of the ball drop at 42nd street but end up watching 10 or more blocks away.

NYCVP saw a need for an indoor event where partiers could drink, eat, use restrooms, while still experiencing all of the glitz and glamour of the ball drop in person. With this event, revelers can enjoy an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, dinner & dessert buffets and entertainment while ringing in the New Year! The New Year’s Eve specials that most of the public will see live on television will also be playing inside on flat-screen TVs while a DJ plays music for dancing as they wait for the ball to drop. They can capture funny and silly moment in a souvenir photo booth while they wait or get lost in the performance of a roving magician (it is also a family-friendly event, not very common for New Year’s Eve in NYC). When the big countdown begins, they get to watch the ball drop in Times Square from this private party suite with a constant birds-eye view of the ball drop and the crowds below, PLUS a view of the Central Park fireworks after midnight. After last year’s event, people who attended were exclaiming how “it was an amazing night, all of the staff were fantastic, the music and the atmosphere was incredible. Overall had the best night ever!!!”

For one of the most iconic events in the world on New Year’s Eve, NYCVP created a party that makes revelers feel like VIPs…skipping the packed-in-like-sardines crowd down on the street…all while watching from 23 stories above. It is one of the more reasonably priced New Year’s Eve events in the city, costing $699 without hotel accommodations. But, if you also need a hotel, accommodations for the event are available at special rates starting at $979 including the party and a 1-night hotel stay. The host hotel is the Sheraton New York Times Square, with several other hotels available. For more information visit or call NYCVP at 877 NYC-Trip (877 692-8747).
