          i wrote the same exact thing, but i guess it didnt save..I'd completely avoid times square that day....torturous.

            I celebrate every year at THE VIEW located in the Marriot Marquis Hotel-very easy to get to if you just take train to Times Sq-walk to 8th avenue and then to either 44-45th Street to the hotel-extremely easy despite the crowds!

            1. re: UES Mayor

              And I assume it has a good view of the parade at THE VIEW?

                I'd go to the Oak Bar at the Plaza and poke your head out of the front door every few minutes.

                  Have you been there since they reopened? Dying to check it out.

                  There's nothing better than watching a parade from 40 floors up.

                    Not really-but u can view from below then go upstairs to view the rest of city in revolving restaurant.

            2. Landmarc in the Time/Warner building looks out over Broadway-if you got one of the window seats you'd see pretty well.
