One of the night's most memorable events all around the world is the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball Drop. A custom that started back in the 1907, the iconic ball, a 12-foot glittering sphere weighing 11,875 pounds, is dropped each year at the turn of midnight from a flagpole on top of One Times Square, as the square is blitzed with one ton of shimmering confetti.

One of the world's most electric New Year's Eve parties, Times Square draws in over a million revelers to countdown the seconds to the New Year, as well as being broadcast live to millions of viewers around the world.  Adding to all this you have the celebrity music acts, an enthralling pyrotechnic lightshow and the popular New Year's Eve Wishing Wall, where partygoers can write down their hopes for the New Year.

If you prefer to escape the masses, book a table at one of the bars or restaurants overlooking the Square, or opt for a boat cruise from New York Harbor where you'll get a great view of the midnight fireworks set off from Liberty Island. This is one place, which no one would ever want to miss in their lifetime.
