Experience Times Square New Years

Times Square is the unofficial center of all things New Years and you can have a front row seat from home with live video of the festivities.

Nearly one million people crowded the crossroads of the world on what was expected to be the coldest New Year’s Eve in five years. But thanks to a live video stream from Times Square, you’ll be able to party indoors and watch from wherever you ring in the new year.

For those heading into New York to watch the ball drop live, NJ Transit scheduled extra inbound and early bird service on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and the Morris & Essex lines. Additional service will also be available after midnight.

NJ Transit will be strictly enforcing its policy of no open containers of alcohol on trains, light rail vehicles, aboard buses or in any NJ Transit facility.

In Times Square, where bags and open containers are not allowed, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a Bronx native, will lead the final 60-second countdown to the ball drop at midnight. The ball weighs in at t11,875 pounds with 2,600 Waterford crystals formed into a  brand new design called “Gift of Imagination” according to ABC 7.

Bomb-sniffing dogs and heavily armed counter-terrorism teams have been deployed. New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelley told NBC 4 New York the city’s events “are in good shape” with no specific terror threats.

Starting at 7:59 p.m., CNN’s Anderson Cooper will lead a countdown, welcoming the new year as midnight draws closer to Manhattan. Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Melissa Etheridge and Blondie will all perform throughout the evening.
