Question New York at Xmas & new year

Hi, Im just starting out planning a Christmas-new year trip to New York just me and my 19yr old son.
Ive never been before so Im looking for hotel and location recommendations plus a direct flight from Manchester leaving either 25/26th December and returning either 30th of 1st jan.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
*my budget atm is around 3000

Virgin now fly from Manchester and they have a sale on too. Maybe look at a package with virgin holidays? I've been for new year and it was fab. I booked diy though but that can be time consuming

I've just looked and the flights are only out upto 25 December so you will have to wait a few days

We stayed in the Ritz Carlton Battery Park on the occasion. I got a really good rate through Amex and it was on a 3 nights for the price of 2 at the time. It was a good base for us as our kids were young teenagers and I didnt want to be right in the middle on NYE

I also used points I had accumulated and we upgraded to Club which saved us a load of money in food and drink

Been trawling all the sites and looking at various hotels today and Im liking the look of the hotel Moxy Times Square... getting a package price of 2970 with BA flying out on Boxing Day and returning New Years Day.
