NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Security leading up to the ball drop in Times Square this New Year’s Eve is normally locked down, and this year is no different.

“The NYPD is doing everything possible to ensure the public is safe for the New Year’s Eve celebration, but we also want New Yorkers to take their personal safety seriously,” said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito. “With dangerously low temperatures and wind chills forecast to be near zero around midnight in Times Square, make sure you bundle up and wear layers with hats, scarfs and gloves to stay warm as you enjoy the New Year’s Eve festivities.”
