What about all of that neon in Times Square?

The neon lights light up some of the highest-priced billboard advertising in the world.

The ball drop at the annual New Years Eve Times Square Celebration started in 1904, and occurs at 11:59 pm at One Times Square.

Little-Known Fact: Public restrooms are not available at the Times Square ball drop.

Wow. I never thought of that. Of course, I’ve never been in  NYC during the New Year’s Eve celebration.
