The inaugural New Year's Eve bash, held in 1904, commemorated the official opening of the headquarters of the New York Times with a fireworks display at midnight. Two years later, when the city banned the fireworks display, The Times arranged to have a large, illuminated seven-hundred-pound iron and wood ball lowered from the tower flagpole precisely at midnight to signal the end of 1907 and the beginning of 1908. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of people have gather around the Tower, now known as One Times Square , for the famous New Year's Eve ball-lowering ceremony, as millions nationwide and nearly a billion watching throughout the world unit to count down the final seconds of the year.

Founded by William and George Penrose, Waterford was established in the heart of the Irish harbor town of Waterford in 1783. Today, Waterford is known worldwide for creating crystal and glass drinkware, crystal gifts and home accessories of unsurpassed beauty and quality.
