"A headline in the December 31, 1907 issue of @nytimes instructed readers to "Watch the Times Tower." The article explained that "the exact moment of the New Year's arrival will be signalized by the dropping of an electrically illuminated ball." Today, the tradition continues, but on a much larger scale: More than 1 million revelers gather in and around #TimesSquare to partake in the 109-year-old tradition. This 1934 photo of revelers on 43rd Street and Broadway comes from the @nytimes archives. #tbt #🎉 #🎊 #🎇" By nytimes on Instagram.
