New York City is one of the most popular destinations for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Last year more than two million people gathered in Times Square to countdown to midnight and watch the ball drop. The iconic event is free, but there’s other fun events to take advantage of in the Big Apple and they won’t cost you a penny. The Staten Island Ferry gives riders great views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey and the ride is completely free. If you’re looking for live music, the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine has hosted a free Concert for Peace every New Year’s Eve. Prospect Park also hosts a fireworks show that features live music and free hot cocoa. The festivities begin around 11 p.m. at Grand Army Plaza.
