Times Square Ball

The Times Square celebrations began in 1904, but it was 1907 when the first New Year's Eve ball made its descent from a flagpole on One Times Square.

This year the iconic ball will have 2,688 Waterford Crystal triangles, each with different designs for the new year.

All those crystals are heavy. Add the 672 LED modules and 32,256 LEDs to make the ball light up in 16 million colors and it all makes the Ball weigh 11,875 pounds. A long way from the first ball that was made of iron and wood and had only one hundred 25-watt light bulbs.
