Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
After the ball drops and the festivities subside, the New Year begins in earnest. Whatever madness went down in 2019 is now in the past, and 2020 is your blank page to write on. If you’re the type to make pledges to yourself, it’s time to put your plans in action. But who says this can’t be fun? Take a dip during Coney Island’s Polar Bear Club New Year’s Day Swim or take up a new sport–curling. If you want to be indoors, get new perspective at the Winter Onederland experience atop One World Trade or sit in on the The 46th Annual New Year’s Day Marathon Benefit Poetry Reading to hear local artists' work. Otherwise, head to one of the best sports bars to watch the Rose Bowl or NHL Winter Classic or plan a delicious, wholesome meal (and maybe a cocktail or two) at one of the city’s best brunch spots. The fun doesn't need to stop there–there are many excellent NYC events in January
