Last week’s question
The Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball dropped for the first time to signal the end of which year?
a. 1904
b. 1907
c. 1924
d. 1946
The correct answer is B. New York City hosted the first New Year’s Eve celebration at Times Square in 1904. The celebration included a fireworks display. Two years later, New York banned the fireworks display, but Alfred Ochs, owner of the New York Times, arranged to have a large, illuminated 700-pound iron and wood ball lowered from the tower flagpole precisely at midnight to signal the end of 1907 and the beginning of 1908.
