The Coolest Place to Spend New Year’s Eve (It’s Not Times Square)

You may know by now that I love pretty much anything to do with Coney Island. Last New Year’s Eve, Coney Island introduced a new and groovy alternative to the crowds in Times Square: the Parachute Jump Midnight Ball Drop! This year, Coney Island USA is starting another new tradition, their first New Year’s Eve Party. Get a ticket, bring your buddies, and ring in the new year at the seashore! ~Karen Seiger, Markets of New York City
