Sooo...I managed to squeeeeze my end of the year schedule in the hospital so I was able to get me those days off, and I just bought me and my mom plane tickets to spend New Year's Eve in the city! Yaay! yahoo.gif New Yorkers...I will accept ANY suggestions for entertainment purposes...meaning...places to go on that very night-(I tried one year to get to Times Square and I won't even try to repeat it...it was a nightmare)...restaurants, theater shows around those days...ANYTHING that could make my days over there ever better!

(I would like to see the Rockettes...)

 

Thanks in advance!  tiphat.gif

Rockettes sounds like fun.  Another option is Alvin Ailey Dance Company, which will be at New York City Center during that period.   Or a Broadway show?

 

Have fun!

Oh, Ailey would be a great way to see in the new year!

I plan to go see both Nutcrackers-(City Ballet and Ratmansky's), Falstaff, Die Fledermaus and Tosca and, as I said, the Rockettes.  Ailey  sounds like a good option too.  I want to pack my days! happy.png

The Ratmansky Nutcracker will have ended before you arrive but there is so much available anyway. Be sure to check Goldstar.com asap. A brief, free registration is required but their discounts for performances and NY "experiences" are often excellent. They do add fees but they are much less than those of most theaters. As of this morning they had nicely discounted seats for the Rockettes for dates you are in NY. Since you are visiting during our most popular tourist season this is the one time I strongly suggest you get your tickets in advance.

How about the Christmas tree and Neopolitan Creche at the Metropolitan Museum? On display till Jan. 6. And a bonus could be to take in the Venetian Glass exhibit.

If I were going to be in NYC, I would go to this -- a re-creation of the famous/infamous 1913 Armory Show.

Oh the MET!  Be sure to visit my (ahem) Tiffany Stained Glass windows in the American Wing. 

 

Go ice skating at Rockefeller Center Plaza.  Take your mama to tea at The Plaza (feel like Eloise).
