New York City is the planet's de facto capital city, and whenever you're walking the streets of Manhattan, it truly does feel like you're in the center of the world, right where everything is happening. This is, after all, the city that doesn't sleep, isn't it? So keep up all night and party like there's no tomorrow on this New Year's Eve!

Did you first fall in love with New York City through books, movies and television? If you're yearning for an experience straight out of fiction, why not choose to spend the last night of 2016 like you're inside F Scott Fitzgerald's mind? The Hudson Terrace is hosting an epic 1920s-themed bash, Gatsby’s House New York New Years Eve 2017, which will keep you on your toes while you're dancing the night away.
In the same beat as this celebration of the past, you can mix that up with a little bit of futuristic partying at the Diamond Horseshoe inside the Paramount Hotel on Dec. 31, where a hot 1940s celebration venue will open its doors once more during the new millennium for a night straight out of science fiction, Metropolis: The City of Tomorrow.
