New Year’s Eve in Times Square, when throngs of people gather in the “center of the universe” to welcome in the new year not with a whimper but with a thunderous bang heard around the world.

New Year's Eve Ball Drop

(Dec. 31)

It’s a tradition: The Waterford crystal ball makes its descent down the flagpole atop 1 Times Square at 11:59 pm on the last day of every year. Spectators are welcomed into the revelry area starting at 6 pm.
