Times Square
The heart of New York’s New Year celebrations is, as always, Times Square, where shows, lights and the iconic countdown clock scanned by the Ball Drop create endless suggestions. In the most famous square in the world the celebrations for 2019 began on December, the 13th, with the display of the two numbers 1 and 9 in giant format, but already from the 1st of the month (and up to 29) it was possible to pin down on Wishing Wall of Times Square Plaza dreams and good intentions for 2019 collected in colorful sheets of paper. Those who will not be able to visit the Wishing Wall in person, can share their wishes, through the website, on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ConfettiWish. At midnight on the 31st all wishes will be launched as confetti on the crowd as a good omen for the new year. While on December, the 28th, from noon to 1 a.m., on Goodwood’s Times Square Square, Good Riddance Day will be held, in collaboration with the company Shred-in, to destroy the bad memories of 2018 and start the new year. But the real tradition is the Ball Drop, the descent of the luminous sphere from the One Times Square skyscraper to the countdown at midnight of the new year. Become an iconic symbol all over the world, the sphere weighs about 6 tons and is covered by 2,688 Waterford crystals, which illuminate the night with over 16 million kaleidoscopic colors. The nearby premises will offer their guests a toast with a view, to celebrate the arrival of the new year. To watch the event live worldwide you can connect to:, and
