CELEBRATE A NEW YEAR IN NEW YORK

The action in Times Square isn’t over just because the New Year’s ball has dropped. Enter the new AVA LOUNGE, a duplex of posh cocktailing atop the Majestic Hotel. Toast the 360-degree skyline view from the retro-minimalist interior or the outdoor terrace — heated for winter use and furnished with chaise lounges for two. Binoculars posted along the hallway to the VIP room invite close-ups. (212) 956-7020 —
