All roads lead to 2018, except when they’re closed on New Year’s Eve in Times Square. That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide to help you navigate the festivities and ring in the new year with no hassles.
If you are heading to Times Square for New Years Eve, you are advised to enter from Sixth or Eighth Avenue.
The New York Police Department will begin closing down access to Times Square starting at 43rd Street and Broadway. The blocks will be closed off as they fill up northward, street-by-street, as the NYPD deem necessary.
The exact times that these blocks close to pedestrian and vehicle traffic will depend on when patrons begin to arrive.
Don’t Drop the Ball When Parking
We’ve put together a list of parking facilities that will get you in for the countdown and out for the after-parties…or bedtime.
No Traffic Allowed
There will be no vehicle traffic on either Broadway or Seventh Avenue as of approximately 3:00 p.m.
Keep in mind you will have difficulty traveling across town after 3:00 p.m. or earlier above 42nd Street and as far north as 59th Street.
