From land, sea and air, here are great NYE spots where you can enjoy sights of the holiday.

From the Times Square ball drop to Elton John's Barclays Center concert, there are plenty of cool spots to celebrate New Year's Eve.

Chez Josephine, easily one of the sexiest and most romantic eateries in town, is offering a seductively delicious New Year’s Eve menu for those in the mood for love (with another, or with food, or with both!). For $200 per person, your ring-in-2014 feast will include Petrossian smoked salmon, terrine de fois gras de canard with black mission fig marmalade, and an intermezzo of grapefruit sorbet, followed by more gastronomic decadence, such as sea scallops with truffle pommes mousseline, filet mignon with chanterelle mushrooms and potato croquettes, chocolate profiteroles and more. With your feast comes party favors and live entertainment. Surely the ghost of chanteuse Josephine Baker will be with you to ring in all the fabulous fun!

During any given holiday, New York City is the place to be. I mean, think about. We celebrate Thanksgiving, St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween with larger-than-life parades and festivities throughout town; and Christmas ushers in awe-inspiring decorations, which hang from the city’s venerable landmarks. So of course, New York knows how to ring in a new year

This afternoon, I witnessed the final test of the New Year’s Eve ball drop at the iconic One Times Square building. My journey began with a short elevator ride to the 21st floor. From there, I was briefed on the history of this famous New Year’s Eve tradition, which began December 31, 1903 with a fireworks display to celebrate The New York Times’ move to the area.

My first New Year’s Eve in New York City, I decided to ring in 2007 with a trip to Times Square. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see the iconic ball drop in “The Crossroads of the World”? The problem? I decided to attempt this around 11 p.m. on December 31, 2006.
