Since 1907, thousands have traveled to One Times Square in New York City to watch the crystal ball drop when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Day. They’re hearty souls who stand for hours in frigid weather, crowded behind barricades where once they enter, they can’t leave until the event ends. They can’t bring in bags, food, and water. Bathroom breaks aren’t allowed, so many people wear disposable diapers—just in case.
If you’ve thought about attending the celebration live but don’t want to experience these conditions, now you can stream the ball drop in real time from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Simply go to timessquareball.net on New Year’s Eve and enjoy!
