Times Square Ball Drop
Celebrate the arrival of 2013 with the annual Times Square Ball Drop. Nothing compares with the exhilaration of watching the fete from the streets, plus you can catch music and other performances in the hours leading up to midnight. With all the revelry, it's best to get there as early as possible; street closures begin during the midafternoon, and some of the choicest spots are usually filled by 3pm.
