Fun facts!

New Year celebration in New York.The New Year celebration started for the first time in 1904.

It was the same year when the city opened it´s first subway line and the invention of the neon light. It was also the same year as the new headquarters of "The New York Times" officially opened. It was the newspaper´s owner, German Jewish immigrant Alfred Ochs, who wanted to rename Longacre Square to Times Square, in honor of the famous publication.

New Years Eve 1907 the "falling" ball was used for the first time at Times Square (at Broadway & 43rd Street ). It has been falling every year except for the years 1942 and 1943 when the light was forbidden to shine during the II World War. To get the best view of the ball you can stand within 43rd Street to 50th Street and at Seventh Avenue, all the way up north to 59th Street.

The celebration was a success and from then Times Square replaced Lower Manhattan´s Trinity Church as New York City´s place to ring in the new year.
