New York City welcomed 2014 with a crowd of over a million in Times Square early Wednesday morning – and a new mayor and administration starting a new page in city history.
Nearly 800 people will be hard at work the next few days to pull off one of the world’s largest New Year’s Eve parties.
The 30,000 LED lights on the New Year’s Eve ball at Times Square are being fueled in part by pedal power.
The 2013 Masters will be remembered for a variety of crazy storylines. But the positive ones will prevail, thanks to Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera.
At the time of the first New Year’s celebration in Times Square, Theodore Roosevelt was president, the New York Yankees were still known as the New York Highlanders, and it had been less than a decade since Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the eastern Bronx had been annexed to New York City.
The ball is comprised of nearly 2,700 Waterford crystals and 32, 256 LED lights and weighs 12,000 pounds – nearly six tons.
