New Year’s Eve in New York City 2017 into 2018 Celebrations
Further down on this page, beneath this webcast are details of the upcoming New Year’s Eve Items taking place in NYC.
Also, there’s the related TIMES SQUARE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS for the evening.
Wow! What other site captures the world’s imagination, anticipation and attention than Times Square at 11:59 pm on December 31st of every year? That’s when the countdown begins and New York City’s revelers and this City’s biggest party participants roar out each number as we all join Dick Clark, who’s been playing host since 1971, in welcoming the New Year.
Hundreds of thousands participate in this celebration and over one billion watch it from their TV sets. Perhaps the greatest celebratory event in the millennium was the welcoming of 2000. It was covered by all major television stations as they kept their eyes on the entire world. Heck, my own eyes were glued to the television from morning ’till evening as I watched nation after nation around the world bring in the New Year.
NYC’s Times Square is only one of hundreds of reasons I’m proud to be a New Yorker. One of those many sites throughout the city which makes outsiders crave to be a part of it all.
A reason to celebrate, a reason to stand in awe, a time to let go of the past, a time to welcome the future, a reason to join in with one’s neighbors and shout in the New Year. So hold your loved one’s hand as we all count down from 10 to 1 while that grand ball drops. Millions within NYC and around the world share in the same sort of celebration. Awesome, isn’t it? Quite awesome. May you be kept in your peace and may the New Year bring you all fortune and success.
