On December 31st, about one billion people from several countries will settle down in front of a television screen to watch the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration. Watching the New York City Event on TV is popular, but it can't match the excitement of being there in person.
The iconic ball will drop as the clock strikes midnight, but there is much more to this annual Manhattan celebration. Live performances by top singers, cultural performances, special presentations, and much more also help countdown the hours until it is time for the ball to drop.
This year marks the 108th year that this event will take place in Times Square to celebrate the start of a brand new year. The ball, which weighs nearly 6 tons, is adorned with 2,688 Waterford Crystal triangles. People from all over the world will countdown together in the final seconds of 2015.
People begin arriving at Times Square at about 3 p.m., and attendees need to arrive early to get the best spots. The ball drop takes place from the top of One Times Square. The best places for viewing are on Broadway, from 43rd Street to 50th Street, and along Seventh Avenue, as far north as 59th Street.
Many of the Restaurants located nearby have New Year's Eve parties that offer food, drinks, and a wonderful view of the Times Square festivities. These events sell out in advance, so those hoping to attend should reserve their spot well in advance. Families staying at a Manhattan Hotel will be pleased to find that some of the parties are for all ages, so the kids are welcome to come along.
