Ring in NYE at Times Square on 2

If you had a classic loft, what you do with it on NYE? Throw a massive party of course! DJ Mel-V is ready to turn the wheels of steel and make it rain confetti in the center of it all. Get there early and stake out a spot the dance floor where you can actually see the Ball Drop in Times Square (yeah, that one!) when its time of course.

Prepare for the Ultimate Chill

When the action’s hot and heavy, there is always need for a laid back zone where you can have a conversation and straight up chill. The aptly named Arctic Square is such a place. So when a moment to slip out of the fray is needed, head to the Arctic. The view is sublime and the seating is cozy. Enjoy a cocktail and relax before you get back at it!
