About the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball Drop Celebrations
To come to Times Square to see the ball drop is free and does not require tickets, but you may need to arrive extremely early (sometimes as early as the night before) and be willing to stand out in the cold for many hours without access to bathrooms or seating. Alternatively, we sell tickets for parties in Times Square that will allow you to enter the Times Square area much later (as late as 8pm on NYE) and give you access to area parties that will have food, drinks, and music leading up to the ball drop at midnight.
The Times Square New Year's Eve Ball descends from a flagpole at the top of One Times Square, which is located at 7th Ave, between 42nd St & 43rd St. It can be seen along Broadway, from 41st St to 50th St, and along 7th Ave, as far north as 59th St.
