New York City.

However, if you mean in Key West, anywhere on Duval Street between Caroline and Petronia. There are 2 midnight "drop" events. One at Sloppy Joe's where they drop a Conch shell at midnight and one at Bourbon Street Pub, where a drag queen is lowered in a giant shoe at midnight. Either of these will be packed with people in the streets. There is also a slightly lower key party at Schooner Wharf along the harbor where they lower a pirate wench from the roof at midnight. Bars are open and busy, but the party is in the street.

We were there last New Year’s Eve and enjoyed the conch drop outside sloppy Joes. There are drops at schoooners, bourbon street, sunset pier.

This year we just got tickets for a music event featuring Eddie Money at the new amiptheatre! We will watch the drop at schooners after the show.

Not finished per se but usable if that makes sense. The surrounding park etc is still a work in progress.

I agree, be as far away from NYC as you can on NYE, it's not fun. To answer the question, I like celebrating at SWB because it's a lot of fun and much more laid back than the other venues in town.
