Where to Celebrate New Years Eve in NYC

No matter where in the world you live, it’s hard to think of a more iconic New Years Eve image than the ball dropping at midnight in the middle of Times Square.  When it comes down to it though, you’d be hard pressed to find an actual New Yorker willing to huddle out in the cold for hours in the middle of an (in all likelihood, inebriated) crowd.  Why should they, since December 31 is when all of the best restaurants in town throw their most extravagant and glamorous parties?  We’re not going to pretend that you won’t have to lay down some serious dough for a late night seating, but dancing the night away at SushiSamba, sipping bubbly at Arlington Club, or catching a glimpse of the ball drop at Aureole are all excellent ways to start the year off right (and don’t include getting trampled over by some tourist from Missouri).
