Before Times Square became the worst place to be on New Year’s Eve, New York high society spent the evening on the rooftop of the Waldorf Astoria or at Studio 54. Those were the good ol’ days! So, before you ring in 2017, take look back at fabulous historical photos of Andy Warhol, Liza Minelli, Diana Ross, and Grace Jones dancing the night away at the club, and celebrities like Meryl Streep and Robert Downey Jr. attending parties thrown by Woody Allen, Madonna and more.
