Out with the old and in with the new. With the ball drop just 18 days away, crews in Times Square are getting ready for the new year. The numeral “1” and “8” arrived on a flatbed truck Wednesday. The 7-foot tall numbers are now on display at the Crossroads of the World, Times Square, waiting to be hoisted into place atop One Times Square for the New Year’s Eve festivities. And we have the pictures!
