New Years Eve Day

We will have restaurant reservations away from Times Square for dinner, but are planning our NYE Day activities. We want to have breakfast at Carnegie, visit MOMA late morning, Rockefeller Center to see the tree and then head down to Korea Town for a late lunch around 3:30. How difficult is it going to be to get around that day?

Will we be able to walk down Fifth? We will then have to walk back to Hotel Edison around 5. Will there be taxis still running at that time to get back? Maybe up 8th? I read they stop going towards the Times Square area at a certain time?

Thanks!

Barb

Hey Barb:-) The barricades start going up around 3-4p for the ball drop.. you're looking at traffic congestion due to the blocked streets in the mid-downtown areas so if you're looking for a late lunch in Korea Town, you're better off just walking back;-) Cabs will certainly be running all over the City.. but when 1 area is blocked off, it affect other parts of the City as well with traffic/back-ups;-) Have fun.. and enJOY!

Thanks for the quick reply. So depending on the weather, I have no problem walking back. If it is too cold we may rethink our lunch choice or not care how long ittakes the taxi to get us backto the hotel mI just wanted to make sure we could get a taxi.

My pleasure Barb:-) Bottom line, no one can tell you how 'easy' it will be if looking for a cab.. the area will be congested by 3:30p and would think a cab would take forever! Nonetheless, it's not a long walk.. and having said that, no one can predict weather conditions;-) Short of walking, subway is a good bet! Keep enjoyin'!
