What's Doing in New York City

By Richard F. SHEPARD

NEW YEAR'S EVE - The old year's going out and so-on Mon. day night-should you. You can, of course, revel at one of those hotel parties with noisemakers, paper hats and hefty tabs, but if you want to be different, the biggest New Year's Eve bash is outdoors--and free.

PAPERING THE HOUSE The house is not being papered this time in a style that Boss Tweed would have appreciated back in 1872 when he had the place, the courthouse on Chambers Street, behind City Hall, built at an outrageous cost of $14 million, all but $4 million of which apparently went into the pockets of himself and his colleagues. The Tweed Courthouse, for all that its sponsors gouged the public by overcharges on paper, is a handsome public building in the AngloItalianate style, unvirtuous testimony to a situation in which corruption may be the cornerstone without notably depreciating quality. This despite the fact that honest administrations in later years managed to do so by additions and transformations that were less than esthetic.

Music Video: The Industry and Its Fringes

GOING OUT GUIDE

MUSIC VIDEO SHOW It is less than a year and a half since the rebuilt, modernized Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53d Street, opened to the public in May 1984. The overcrowding of those first few months has disappeared, but the museum is still thronged and it would be easy to miss a new exhibition devoted to one of the most modern of the arts, the music video. The two-and-a-half hour, 35-item ''Music Video: The Industry and its Fringes'' takes these commercial, promotional tools of the music industry from 1967 to the present, a period in which they have developed experimental image-process techniques that have made them into a staple of pop culture.
