New Year's Eve In New York City
As the new year approaches, New York City gets ready for its annual Times Square celebration. The famous ball drop atop One Times Square has been a tradition dating back to 1906.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people descend upon Times Square to experience this free event. If you are planning to join the festivities, get there early and be prepared - you'll be corralled into barricaded areas where you'll have to stay for the duration. If you leave, you can't get back to where you were.
