New Year's Eve ball drop in Times Square: See photos of the revelers, performers, more

There's nothing like New Year's Eve in NYC. 

Annually, revelers brave the weather, and 2018 into 2019, heavy rainfall included, was no exception. Many more of us chose the cozier option (= watching from our couches), but the result was the same: performances by Christina Aguilera, New Kids on the Block and many more.
