Bathroom / Restroom Tips for the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball Drop

You decided to attend the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball Drop. What do you do now? What are your choices? This annual celebration will require some planning before you leave home.

Times Square Ball Drop NYE 2015 - Need Bathroom

Because of many street closings leading to Times Square.  Traveling to the ball, please review the mass transit bus and subway maps that lead to Times Square.  Please plan your timing accordingly. 

The crystal ball drops from a flagpole located at One Time Square and can be seen along Broadway between 43rd Street and 50th Street.  In addition you can see the ball drop down 7th Avenue between 43rd Street and 59th Street.  Having this map in mind, you can locate your hotel accommodations,  should you be staying for the evening and your dining reservations   as there will be no food or beverages sold by street vendors.  Some attendees enjoy going to pre and post parties, so plan those accordingly.   Get New Years Eve Party Supplies here with Amazon

For security, no large bags or backpacks will be allowed and all bags will be subject to be searched.  Please be suspicious of any packages left alone.

If you want to have some libations, save that for the bar and restaurants.  Public drinking is illegal in New York City.   Instead stay hydrated with water, since alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate you especially in cold weather.

Dress in layers as it will get chilly.  Don't forget your hats and gloves.  Hand warmers can come in handy!

As you arrive in Times Square, the police will start setting up viewing sections with barricades.  Once you are in a section, you might be able to leave until the ball has dropped.  Which then leads to the next paragraph.

So, how do you go to the bathroom in Times Square on New Year's Eve. Let's discuss where to go, when you have to go.  Most hotels, restaurants and stores surrounding the viewing area will not allow you to use their rest rooms.  Unfortunately, there are no paid toilets or port-a-potties. For some, wearing   Adult Diapers, Adult Briefs, Protective Underwear, Urinary Bag and Catheter or Pull Ups is an option.  If you decide to "go" in public, you will be arrested! In addition, if you have been screened and you decide to leave the designated area, you will not be let back in, and you cannot discard any items at the security checkpoints.

If you choose to include the kids in the festivities, if they are babies, then Baby Diapers will be packed, however your older kids are in the same situation as you.  Some establishments may allow a child to use the bathroom, but don't count on their generosity. CWI Medical does have youth briefs as well.  You might be better off leaving the kids home.

Lastly in New York City, you might find yourself in a tall building hopefully you will not need the Stryker Evacuation Chair in case of an emergency.  The Styker Evac Chair will help you save someones life.

Most importantly, have fun and stay out of trouble!  Think about what has happened over the past year and what you will do in the coming year.  I know many will be working on their fitness goals,  starting new jobs and other great adventures!
