COUNTDOWN TO NYE 

Times Square New Year's Eve 2022

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 watch Times Square, nationwide, and throughout the world and are united in bidding collective farewell to the departing year and expressing joy and hope for the year ahead.

New Year's Eve 2022 will safely invite revelers back to Times Square to watch the Ball Drop in person, with proof of full vaccination and valid photo identification. The highly anticipated festivities will also be broadcast for television and internet audiences, and will include a virtual multi-media experience.

The health and safety of New Year’s Eve revelers is the priority of Times Square New Year’s Eve 2022.  The event is working closely with medical experts to consult on all health protocols and to ensure that everyone follows the state established safety guidelines.
