Crowds gather on the street as early as 5am – regardless of the weather – to get an optimal viewing spot. That’s why we offer our guests an inside location where they can see the magnificent floats and balloons in climate-controlled comfort.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
NYCTrip.com, the official website of New York City Vacation Packages (NYCVP) is introducing three new “NYC Insider” parties for 2012.
Insider's Thanksgiving Parade Party
As the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade passes by outside, guests at NYCTrip.com’s Insider’s New York City Thanksgiving Parade Party will enjoy a breakfast buffet while watching the world famous event through floor-to-ceiling windows at Del Frisco’s Steak House, located on the Avenue of the Americas parade route.
Included as well is a choice of sightseeing tours – either a Wednesday afternoon hosted tour of the Parade Balloon Inflation area or a Thursday evening narrated and guided Holiday Displays motorcoach tour of the famous department store windows.
“Thanksgiving and the Macy’s Parade is New York City’s signature event, the official start of the holiday season,” says NYCTrip.com’s Joel Cohen. “Crowds gather on the street as early as 5am – regardless of the weather – to get an optimal viewing spot. That’s why we offer our guests an inside location where they can see the magnificent floats and balloons in climate-controlled comfort.”
The Insider’s Thanksgiving Parade Party is available only through NYCTrip.com or a travel agent, with a 4-night or longer hotel stay at the Sheraton New York Hotel, Hilton New York Hotel, Marriott Marquis, Le Parker Meridien, Manhattan at Times Square or W New York Downtown Hotel. Arrival dates are November 19, 20 or 21, 2012.
Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Party
NYCTrip.com has arranged an exclusive cocktail party the evening of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting. Brasserie Ruhlmann, located in the center of Rockefeller Plaza, is the host venue; guests will have exclusive use of the facilities at the Brasserie, including the outdoor patio that features a direct close-up view of the tree. They’ll also be among the privileged few to have approval to enter the Rockefeller Center area for the tree lighting event.
From 7pm on, there will be an open bar and hors d’oeuvre stations available. A noted New York City historian and lecturer will talk about the history and architecture of Rockefeller Center and the world-famous tree, and an entertaining local expert will be on hand to inform the group about the array of holiday decorations throughout the City.
Just before 9pm guests can gather in the outdoor patio to watch the lighting of the tree for the first time in 2012. There will be a professional photographer available for keepsake photos.
NYCTrip.com has arranged specially-priced hotel accommodations at the Waldorf=Astoria Hotel and at the Sheraton New York Hotel for arrivals November 27 or 28.
New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala
As New Year's Eve Times Square revelers stand shoulder to shoulder from 42nd Street all the way up to Central Park, guests at NYCTrip.com’s New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala will be high above them at an exclusive party. Located on the 22nd and 23rd floors of Sentry Center, the event will feature DJ dance music, fancy hors d’oeuvres and desserts, open bar and above all (quite literally), a view of the city lights, the celebration and of course, the Times Square Ball Drop.
Offering a commanding view of the million or so partiers lining both 7th Avenue and Broadway – and of the Waterford Crystal ball itself – Sentry Center is the perfect spot to welcome the New Year in the middle of Times Square. It’s located just 10 short blocks from the fireworks and ball drop, recognized around the world as the universal symbol of the holiday.
Guests at this NYCTrip.com New Year’s Eve event can opt for specially-priced accommodations at the Sheraton New York Hotel, directly across the street from the gala party. 3-night and longer stays are available for arrivals beginning December 27.
