Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance and Allison Hagendorf, the host of New Year's Eve in Times Square talk about the excitement that will surround the midnight moment when the special guest Justice Sonia Sotomayor will lead the 60 second countdown to 2014 and a million revelers kiss under a confetti covered night sky.
Each year, international visitors from countries such as Japan, Chile, Australia, France, China and Brazil write their wishes for the New Year on pieces of confetti and post them on the New Year's Eve Wishing Wall in the Times Square Museum and Visitor Center. These pieces are then mixed in with one ton of confetti that will flutter down onto revelers gathered in Times Square. This year Spider-Man dropped in to write a personal wish too!
