Happy New Year! No, you can't see it, but we were in the midst of a zillion people who all gathered at Time's Square to ring in 2008. If memory serves me, we were between 54th & 55th Street on 7th Avenue. (In layman's terms. no where near the ball itself.) If you held your hand up in front of your face, made a circle with your hand about the size of a Shooter marble, you would know about how big the ball was from our perspective. We were far enough away that we didn't even know it was falling until it was halfway down! It was fun though. The crowd was well behaved, no alcohol was seen anywhere near us, there were police EVERYWHERE, and we had Sniper's on buildings to protect us. :-)
I think everyone should experience a New Year's Eve in the vicinity of Time's Square. It really is fun.
