Updated: Dec 22, 2023

As the end of the year swiftly approaches, anticipation for New Year's Eve is building up in one of the most vibrant cities in the world – New York City. With its iconic Times Square ball drop and countless festive events happening throughout the city, there is no better place to bid farewell to the old year and welcome in a new beginning with style. From lavish parties at exclusive clubs to enchanting fireworks displays lighting up the night sky, rest assured you are in for an extraordinary night filled with jubilation and wonderment at one of the hundreds of New Year's Eve festivities planned in The Big Apple. In this blog, we will share just a few of the extravagant NYE events RPD Limousine can chauffeur you and your friends to. Whether you need a limo rental for Bedminster, NJ or surrounding cities to scoop you and your large group up, our luxury limo service is the one to call. 

Times Square Ball Drop

Each year more than one billion people watch the ball drop in Times Square while hundreds of thousands of people gather around One Times Square for hours until the famous Ball-lowering ceremony. A tradition since 1907, the highlight of NYE in NYC is undoubtedly the Times Square Ball Drop.

Here a few ways this yearly event has become so popular: 

Iconic Countdown: As the clock strikes midnight, a dazzling 11,875-pound ball adorned with 2,688 Waterford crystal triangles descends from above One Times Square. A large crowd of people gather amidst a sea of confetti to witness this renowned tradition.

Star-Studded Performances: Leading up to the main event, live musical performances by some of today's biggest artists entertain the crowd. These star-studded shows are broadcasted across the globe and add an extra dose of excitement to this electric atmosphere.

Tips for Best Experience: To make sure you have an unforgettable time at the ball drop, it’s crucial to plan ahead. Arriving early in warm clothing and being prepared for large crowds is essential. Preferably, get dropped off and/or picked up by a car service like RPD Limousine that can get as close as possible to this location.

If you’ve never been to Times Square to watch the ball drop in person, why not join thousands of spectators from all across the country beneath a breathtaking display of lights and music at the iconic Times Square Ball Drop? If you rather watch the ball drop from up above, there are quite a few rooftop lounges that host extravagant NYE parties, and we took the liberty to mention some of them.
