Photos of New York City and Times Square New Years Eve 2013.
Despite the temperature drop from 45 to almost 30 degrees we took a ride to Manhattan, New York City to check out Christmas lights and to see the good holiday cheer. It is our family tradition to take the Fifth Avenue and Times Square stroll around Christmas or New Years Celebrations to sponge in a holiday spirit. This year we did it quite late, on New Years Eve Eve (December 30th) and the crowds are still crazy. It was awesome to see the New Yorkers and tourists are gathering together to spend a night in Manhattan a day before the major craziness – New Years Eve Celebration.
The parking was easy and free by the New York Public Library at 5th Avenue and 40th Street and we had a great view of the Empire State Building lit up with Green, Red and White.

Times Square is setting up and preparing for a ball drop tomorrow.
I saw 4 different stages prepping up for the New years eve celebration. We are going to have some great celebrations and the the concerts suppose to be good.
On the way back to the car we had tasty $1 Pizzas and it was a good surprise at Lord n’ Taylor’s Christmas window we could have our photo taken for free and sent to my smart phone the same second. The best part there were no lines tonight and we could re-take our photos as many times as we wanted.
Happy New Year Everyone!
