NYE in NYC

Hello! My partner and I are going to be in New York over Christmas and New Years. We have found so much to do and planned a lot, however, NY is becoming a bit of a bother. We're really struggling to find something that we would like to do.
Don't get me wrong, we've found countless parties and such, we just don't know what to go for.
The whole Times Square thing, will we enjoy that? Is it too busy? Worth the money? Anywhere cheaper?
Any good djs, gigs etc on in clubs or bars? Any parties?
We…

Transport from Miami Airport to South Beach

Hi all,
We will arrive in Miami Airport around 9PM. What are the options to get to South Beach, apart from the taxi? Is there a return ticket perhaps with a train/bus? As we will need to go back to the airport few days later to pick up a rented car.
In case we book a cab instead, any particular site/company you recommend? is it better to book it in online in advance?

Thanks in advance for your help.
