"#NewYearsEve celebrations in Times Square draw all types of characters. @samuelhodgson captured Cookie Monster sitting on an @nypd blockade today as the city prepared for tomorrow night's events. Although the area shuts down to vehicles around 3 p.m., crowds usually start arriving as early as 10 a.m. Partygoers beware: There are no portable restrooms in #TimesSquare. Some more comfortable options on the square include a $400-a-person buffet dinner at @olivegarden and an outdoor skypod from @theknicknyc, perched just 150 feet away from the ball. (The skypods go for $45,000 a piece.) #🎉" By nytimes on Instagram.
