Important Lodging and Transportation Information
- Hotels are booking fast for New Year’s Eve in NYC! Reserve your room today! See below!
- For air travelers, consider flying in and out of LaGuardia Airport, which is only a 15 min drive (9 mi) from the reception venue. JFK is a 26min away (17 mi), and driving from Newark International may take as much as 1 hour or more depending on traffic conditions through or around Manhattan (not recommended).
- Please allow yourself at least DOUBLE the ground transportation time in New York on New Years Eve. This is a major holiday and you can expect traffic delays.
- On New Years Eve, you can expect major traffic and transportation delays in Manhattan. Thus, please avoid mid and lower Manhattan, especially for travelers from points east (Northern NJ, PA, the Midwest) and South (Southern NJ, PA, DE, MD, VA, the Southeast). Please AVOID THE HOLLAND LINCOLN TUNNELS in particular. From points north and east consider entry via upper Manhattan/Bronx (RFK Bridge). From points South consider entry via Staten Island (Verrazano-Narrows Bridge).
