NYC – New Year’s Eve at Times Square – New Years Eve – New York City – 2023 into 2024

Schedule for Times Square 2023 into 2024

For well over a century, Times Square has been the center of worldwide attention on New Year’s Eve, ever since the owners of One Times Square began in 1904 to conduct rooftop celebrations to greet the New Year. The first Ball Lowering celebration occurred in 1907, and this tradition is now a universal symbol of welcoming the New Year.
