Approximately one million people will flock to Times Square in New York City on December 31, 2018 to see the famous sparkling Waterford Crystal Ball descend while counting down to a year full of new beginnings. Where will you be? If your plans are to attend the iconic Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration, whether because of the NYC tradition or if you are among the billions who have watched the incredible event from the TV every year, then the only way to get there is on a private jet charter to New Year’s Eve in Times Square 2019!
Organized initially by Adolph Ochs, owner of The New York Times newspaper, the event during 1904 was something rather different, thousands flooded the “bowtie” where Broadway and 7th Ave intersect to see a firework display. Ochs was celebrating the new headquarters of The New York Times, but he was creating something more than a historical event for the publication. He created an annual event that stays with us today. Two years later the city banned fireworks, but that didn’t stop Ochs, he arranged to have an illuminated 700 lb iron and wood ball lowered from the tower at midnight, and thus the ball drop was born.
The event has been become a world-wide tradition and an event that cannot be missed, especially if you can get there. Luckily with a private jet charter to New Year’s Eve in Times Square 2019, you can a group of friends can charter an entire private jet to yourselves to make sure you don’t miss it and get there early! Most events start early that night and for the best seats it is recommended to be there at or before 3 pm although the celebration doesn’t start until 6 pm. Not only will you get there early, but also you will make it for the live concerts, the inevitable surprise engagement and a chance to be featured on live television.
Bring your friends and the cost of the charter is even smaller so you can afford to stay at one of the swanky hotels right on the square!
