As 2018 comes to an end, one of my favorite ways to ring in the new year is to watch the NYE ball drop in Times Square.
This year, I had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with the Waterford Crystal ball that drops every year on NYE at One Times Square!
Check out my interview with Waterford Crystal’s Tom Brennan, who was the lead in designing the amazing ball that is seen across the world on New Year’s Eve!
The Waterford Ball is:
Illuminated by 32,256 LED lights
12 feet in diameter and weighs 11,875 pounds
2,688 Waterford Crystal triangles are bolted to 672 LED modules, attached to the frame of the ball
Surprisingly the ball was only located a few flights up from the 21st floor. However, this did not take away any of the allure or grandeur of the Waterford Ball. It is just phenomenal up close!
