One of the Best Gay Places for New Years’s Eve

New York City is the only destination on New Year’s eve that you don’t need to be in a bar, restaurant or even Times square. The electricity this even generates and the view you can see from most places in the city is earth shattering. If you get to anyone near the Hudson or east river or NY harbor, Staten Island, the view of the fire works against the city sky line is a religious experience. You might find your self speaking in other people’s tongues.

Practically synonymous with New Year’s Eve, NYC also happens to be the most popular gay destination in the . You do the math.

PLAY: Locals know to steer clear of Times Square, but if you must, make it a crawl afterwards through the emerging gayborhood Hell’s Kitchen, just west of it. IndustryTherapy, or the adorably trashy Posh (which usually stays open late till 6am).

STAY: Located in far west Chelsea, the Desmond Tutu Center is a short stumble /taxi from all the bars yet quiet enough to sleep in late. Ask for a room facing the enormous (and gorgeous) private garden.

RECOVER: Muse upon the new year and the power as transformation while strolling down the High Line, an abandoned elevated railway turned spectacular urban park that now stretches from West 30th Street down into the Meatpacking District
