New Year’s Eve in Times Square
The flashing lights. The crowds of people. The iconic ball drop.
New Years Eve in Times Square is like no other New Year’s Eve party on the planet. Whether you’ve tuned in to watch the ball drop on TV or actually arranged charter flights to Times Square to see it in person, it’s the perfect event to enjoy while ringing in the New Year.
The Iconic Times Square Ball
Located at One Times Square, the time ball is a prominent part of New Year’s Eve parties in Times Square and around the world. Commonly referred to as “the ball drop,” the ball descends 114 feet in the last minute of the year. This iconic ball drop signals the start to a new year and a fresh start for many people.
Initially, the ball was constructed using wood and iron and lit with 100 incandescent light bulbs. However, it’s been modified a few times since then. Most recently, the ball has been outfitted with a computerized LED system and an outer coating of triangular crystal panels. These modifications have enhanced the iconic ball drop in a way that still gives people chills. It’s absolutely stunning.
