Thought the Water Taxis were strictly reserved for summertime jaunts? Think again. Their open-air tops offer great views of the city's landmarks; dance music, hors d'oeuvres and an open bar will keep you occupied below deck. At midnight, watch the ball drop in Times Square via live feed, and relish the fact that you're out on the water with no crowd in sight. Visit nywatertaxi.com for more information.
