It happens every New Year's Eve at midnight; a big, shiny ball drops from the top of Times Square to the cheers of the crowd in the streets below. This event attracts hundreds of thousands of party goers willing to stand for hours and brave the cold, along with the lack of toilets and the rampant pick-pocketing. For these revelers, there is nowhere else to be at midnight on New Year's Eve. The lucky ones have hotel rooms, offices or apartments from which they can safely view the festivities. In recent years, the city has ramped up police presence and the enforcement its 'no-alcohol' rule. Visit Times Square as this is where the party is at!
