1942: Times Square Waits for the Ball to Drop
2011: Times Square Waits for the Ball to Drop
Through the years the face of Times Square has changed. The architecture, design and technology have evolved with the times. Some would say for the better, while others prefer the simplicity of days gone by. Yet, the spirit of celebration remains the same, and the longstanding traditions of gathering to greet the new year have continued. Every year, thousands gather here to share in the multi-cultural and multi-generational community of neighbors to celebrate the promise of a new year, just as they do in communities like yours and mine all around the world. The clink of the glass and a celebration with those we hold dear. A toast to design of our everyday, and a wish for much beauty and meaning in the coming year. Happy New Year.
