Feel like a VIP – get early access to the top of the Empire State Building before the tourists arrive. No need to wait in line at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise – skip-the-line and get into the exhibit before the crowds.

Write down all your worst memories of the past year, then dump those bad unwanted memories and anything you want to say “good riddance” to (pink slips, mean bosses, photos of your ex, negative thoughts, illness, nasty letters/emails, air-head celebrities, politicians you hate… you get the idea) into the giant shredder located in the heart of Times Square. It’s so liberating — gather and ditch the old before ushering in the new. Shredders and sledgehammers will be provided. 12 noon-1pm
