    Times Square is traditionally one of the most crowded and popular places in the world to meet the beginning of a new year, with the show and the countdown attracting tourists from all over the world. Year 2020, however, has made its adjustments.

    New Year Eve celebrations have kicked off in Times Square in New York City on Thursday, this year with no visitors and no tourists.

    The festivities, which will be live-streamed due to the raging coronavirus pandemic in the US, will be ongoing from 31 December 2020 into 1 January 2021.

    Last year as usual, Times Square, one of many beloved spots for those celebrating the New Year Eve, saw crowds of people flocking to the square to watch the ball drop and count down the seconds until the incoming year.
