“Part of what’s great about our recovery is when we bring back great New York City traditions,” N.Y.C. Mayor de Blasio said during a press conference on Tuesday (November 16). “We love New Year’s Eve in Times Square. We want it to be big, we want it to be full of life, we want it to be a great New York celebration.”

“Guess what everyone? A big, strong, full-strength celebration: it’s coming back. Hundreds of thousands of people there to celebrate. We can finally get back together again. It’s going to be amazing, it’s going to be a joy for this city. Now let’s do it the right way, let’s do it the safe way.”

“We want to welcome all those hundreds of thousands of folks, but everyone needs to be vaccinated. All you need to do is have that proof of vaccination and a valid photo ID and you are in,” he added. “Join the proud, join the joy, join a historic moment as New York City provides further evidence to the world that we are 100% back.”

If you have a disability or medical reason and cannot be vaccinated, you will be required to show proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours.
