Baby, let the games begin.

New York City Swifties will have plenty of choices on where to go to celebrate the release of Taylor Swift’s 11th studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” on Friday.

The highly anticipated release features collaborations with Post Malone and Florence and the Machine, and includes songs such as “Fortnight,” “Florida!!!,” “So Long, London,” “Clara Bow,” “Down Bad” and more.

Fan theories have already run wild about the album’s subject matter. It’s Swift’s first release of new material since she and actor Joe Alwyn broke up after six years of dating.

Luckily, fans can experience the first listen of the album together with an array of Swift-themed nights around town as they laugh, cry and trade friendship bracelets.

So without further ado, here’s a list of happenings around NYC to celebrate “TTPD.”
