The annual event starts with a pre-party at Grand Army Plaza, with free entertainment, and some light refreshments.
Bring the kids, bring the significant other, bring granny. New Year's Eve at Grand Army Plaza is, traditionally, a very low-key, friendly affair. You can dress in sequins and spangles and wear New Year's Eve hats. Or, throw on a sweatshirt and a pair of jeans. It's Park Slope Brooklyn, and nobody cares!
Where to Watch the New Year's Eve Fireworks in Prospect ParkThousands of people flock into beautiful Prospect Park for this event, but don't worry about getting a "good seat." You can see it from just about anywhere.
The organizers recommend stationing yourself at one of these locations:
- anywhere in Grand Army Plaza
- inside the Park on the West Drive
- along Prospect Park West between Grand Army Plaza and 9th Street.
It's a wonderful, happy community event.
Brooklyn's New Year’s fireworks and festivities are sponsored by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.
