New York City NYE Ticket Cost: Free
New York City NYE Ticket Info: Similar to other big cities on New Year’s Eve, New York City is technically free. If you want to bear the 10-degree weather and 10 million other people you can go stand out in the middle of Times Square for free. If you are planning to do anything else – dinner, bars, nightclubs, etc – you can plan to pay a steep price for just cover.
