Well, if that idea appeals to you, you can get a sneak peek of a very crucial token from the experience right now—the 18 of 2018 fame. That’s right, tourists and New Yorkers are giddy over spotting the 1 and 8 numerals which will be lit up with the Times Square Ball at midnight this NYE. You can pose for photos with the sign from now until Dec 22, so get out there (Times Square Plaza between 46th and 47th Sts) and get ready to embrace the new year! We know we're ready.
