Central Park

Looking for a way to celebrate New Year’s Eve near our Midtown Manhattan Hotel? Consider the New York Road Runner’s Midnight Run – a popular NYC Event.

About the Midnight Run and Fireworks in Central Park:
Everyone knows about that other NYC Event for New Year’s Eve, but Times Square isn’t the only place where you can ring in the New Year near DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan. Run into 2017 by participating in this popular Event in NY.

Thousands of runners will take part in the footrace which starts just as the clock strikes midnight. Last year, 4,500 runners participated, and about the same number is expected for this year’s NYC Event. The Midnight Run is just 4 miles, so you can run the course and then head out to party the rest of the night away – or head back to your well-appointed Guest Room at our Manhattan Hotel.

The run, which is organized by the New York Road Runners club and sponsored by Emerald Nuts, is a great way to get 2017 off to a healthy start. At the same moment the run begins, a beautiful fireworks display starts in Central Park. Runners will have the unique opportunity to run the race with fireworks going off and serving as a backdrop to the race.

Some come not for the race, but to see the lovely fireworks display at Central Park. No matter where you sit in Central Park, you will have a great view of the fireworks, which are shot off from the Bandshell. The midnight fireworks display is a wonderful way to welcome 2017.

If you’re still looking for a place to celebrate New Year’s Eve then consider a stay at our ideally-located Midtown Manhattan Hotel. DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan is near top Dining, Shopping, Attractions, and top NYC Events.
