The Concrete Jungle Is The Best Place in America to celebrate 2018 according to Wallet Hub’s survey of 100 U.S. cities.

Two million people will be descending on Times Square tonight, with 175 million watching the ball drop from home, but the more than a century-old tradition is not the only event that makes NYC the best for New Year’s Eve.

With the most restaurants and nightlife venues per capita, there’s something everyone, even though, taking the good with the bad, NYC is one of the most expensive cities to ring in 2018 — second only to Miami — with about $1,600 being the average amount a couple heading out for dinner and show in the city will spend tonight.

After another tumultuous year in the world of New York real estate, there’s a ray of hope for those of us making New Year’s resolutions, according to Wallet Hub’s calculations, New Yorkers collectively rank 24th out of almost 200 cities in terms of being able to keep their goals. — Erin Hudson
