Members of the press with a valid, individual NYPD DCPI-issued or MOME PCO-issued press credential can use that credential to gain access to the emergency access lanes on New Year's Eve, subject to NYPD approval. Interviews may be conducted at the rear or the sidewalk side of each viewing area but not in the emergency access lanes. Interviews/filming may be suspended at any time by the NYPD due to safety concerns.

Members of the press without those credentials can apply for a credential that would allow them to access this event only.

The process for attaining a New Year's Eve-specific press credential will be different for NYE 2024 than in past years. Please check back later in October 2023 for more details.
