Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

January 31st provides an opportunity for celebration right across the 5 boroughs of New York, with thousands of individuals frequenting bars, clubs and restaurants in order to herald the dawn of a brand new year. The beginning in 2012 will be no exception, as New Years Eve remains an evening where people put their social or economic concerns behind them and strive to enjoy an enjoyable, all night celebration. It is important to stay safe as you party in NYC however, in order to ensure that when you return home you have only positive memories of the experience.

Safety for the Individual and Large Groups

So what are the best methods of staying safe in NYC? Well it must be remembered that New Years Eve is a particularly busy and hectic time, where the already bustling streets of the city become even more congested. So being prepared for these crowds of people and applying common sense to every situation that you find yourself in will give you a good foundation for safe practice. The following 3 tips are all designed to afford you additional reassurance, whether you are partying in a small, medium sized or large group.

  • Before assuming responsibility for a group, it is important that you and other individuals take the initiative to protect yourselves. Leaving the house with a fully charged mobile phone is important, especially if you were to become estranged from other members of your group. Taking good care of your cellphone, cash and other valuables ensures that whatever problems you may encounter this New Years Eve, you will be prepared to deal with them.
  • Should you be traveling from outside of the city to sample the New York experience, then it is important to have rigid and adhered to travel plans. If you are making your own way there, then it is crucial that a designated driver remains sober and is prepared to take responsibility for the role. It is important that each member of your party is returned home safely, so be careful not to let carefully laid plans go awry.
  • Hiring a New York Limo remains a potential course of action for large groups or party-goers, especially in terms of safe and convenient travel. Not only are limousine vehicles pre-booked to collect and drop off at designated times, but you can also select a suitable model to courier all of your party in a single visit. Whether your group is 6 or 60 strong, there is a vehicle to suit your needs, and the cost sharing option between individuals ensures that hiring a limo is also an affordable option.

The Bottom Line

While these tips may seem like simple examples of good common sense, they are good practices to get into the habit of undertaking. Where options exist it is always important to select the most safety conscious one when it comes to partying, in order to make sure that alcohol is enjoyed responsibly and that a good evening is not spoiled by reckless or ill considered behavior.
