I'm traveling to NYC in December this year. After reading so many posts, and doing some research of my own i don't think I'm that keen on being right in the heart of times square on NYE. I contacted the Marriott Marquis which has a view of the ball drop and its $3500 each which is crazy, im not spending that much!
I've read so many good and bad reviews about different places, i would just prefer to be in a nice warm pub with my partner watching from the television.
My hotel is located close to the Rockefeller centre, so my question is are there any nice pubs / or restaurants close by that would be worth going to for NYE? im not to concerned about price (you only live once). Also if you know any other places other than times square to spend NYE? the help would be appreciated
