New York new years eve
BY MARTIN KERRIGAN

In the United States, New Year's Eve is celebrated with formal parties and family-oriented activities. Celebrations often center on dropping or raising an item during the countdown, especially on the East coast. New Year's Day is a public holiday in the United States.

Since 1907, the "ball drop" in New York City's Times Square has been a major component of the New Year's Eve celebration, and it has been seen by nearly a million people every year. Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, broadcast on ABC, debuted in 1972. Dick Clark hosted and produced the show every year from 1972 to 2011. In 2009, the show was renamed Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest with Ryan Seacrest sharing presenting duties. In 1999, the show was integrated into ABC 2000 Today, with Dick Clark and Jack Ford reporting during the broadcast, and Peter Jennings anchoring the events of the millennium celebrations in the United States and around the world. Dick Clark sadly passed away in 2012, but the show continued, still bearing his name in tribute.
