COUNTDOWN TO NYE
The only place to spend NYE in the world!
Every year as the clock nears midnight on December 31, the eyes of the world turn once more to the dazzling lights and bustling energy of Times Square. Anticipation runs high. New Year's Eve at the symbolic center of New York City has become more than just a celebration — it's a global tradition.
The world holds its breath, and cheers as the clocks strike twelve.
As the famous New Year's Eve Ball descends atop One Times Square, countless people watching in Times Square, nationwide, and throughout the world are united in bidding collective farewell to the departing year and expressing joy and hope for the year ahead.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NYE 2021 will NOT be open to the public this year — but there will be live performances, and we hope all of you will enjoy the virtual celebrations safely from the comfort of your own home. New Year's Eve 2021 might look a little different than usual, but one thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st. Celebrate with us virtually in an enhanced celebration that will bring Times Square and the Ball Drop to you no matter where you are.
