Revelers began celebrating New Year’s Eve in Times Square as early as 1904, but it was in 1907 that the New Year’s Eve Ball made its maiden descent from the flagpole atop One Times Square. In all, seven versions of the Ball have been designed to signal the New Year.
The first New Year’s Eve Ball, made of iron and wood and adorned with one hundred 25-watt light bulbs, was 5 feet in diameter and weighed 700 pounds. Todays Big Ball weighs nearly six tons and is twelve feet in diameter, with 2,688 Waterford Crystal triangles illuminated by 32,256 Philips Luxeon LEDs. This Ball is now a year-round attraction sparkling above Times Square in full public view January through December.
For safety reasons, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, New Years Eve 2021 will not be open to the public this year. The Times Square website has all the information you need regarding how the virtual celebrations can be enjoyed safely from the comfort of your own home.
